UIU Tutor Center
The Tutor Center provides free tutoring for Upper Iowa University students.
Tutoring through Zoom is available by Drop-In and Appointment.
Drop-In tutoring is instant access to our tutors, available both online and in-person in Fayette. Students will use Penji to create the tutoring session. A list of our tutors, their drop-in tutoring schedules, and the courses they are able to assist with are located in the table below.
Our tutors are available by appointment both during and outside of their scheduled drop-in tutoring times.

UIU has partnered with TutorMe to provide tutoring services to students when UIU’s Tutor Center isn’t available.
TutorMe, as with all Tutor Center services, is free to use for UIU students. TutorMe has tutors available 24/7 in over 300 subject areas.
