Tutoring at IWU

Tutoring is for ALL students. At IWU, a plethora of tutors are available to support all aspects of learning.

Subject Peer Tutors

Whether you’re seeking to improve your test scores, or simply to gain a deeper understanding of course material, a peer tutor can help. Many departments offer subject-specific tutoring one-on-one or in recurring small group settings. To find a tutor, check your course syllabus or connect with your professor.

The Writing Center

Located on the first floor of The Ames Library, The Writing Center helps students with all the stages of the writing process, from those first rough ideas through prewriting, collecting supporting material, drafting, and final editing and proofreading. Writing Center tutors are available to help you to improve your writing for courses in all subjects, as well as for co-curricular and pro-professional projects. There are also English Language Learner tutors and Speech Tutors available through The Writing Center.
