UIU Tutor Center
The Tutor Center provides free tutoring for Upper Iowa University students.
Accudemia is an online platform that allows students to create appointments with our tutors for free via Zoom.
To create a 1:1 appointment with one of our tutors:
- Select “Accudemia” from the My Apps page to go to your dashboard
- Click the “+Schedule Appointment” button on the left
- Select Tutor Center and fill in the other details of the appointment
- Scroll down to see a list of our tutors. Use their direct appointment link to make an appointment with them.
Students will receive an appointment confirmation upon creation of the appointment and a reminder email 1 hour prior to the appointment. Both of these emails will contain the meeting link to connect via Zoom.
SELF-PACED STUDENTS: Please reach out to Markus at [email protected] if you need assistance. He will create your Accudemia account to create appointments with the tutors.
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.
Students are allotted 5 hours per week with TutorMe. If more hours are needed, please send your request to Markus at [email protected] or (563) 425-5853.
To access TutorMe, go to uiuLearn and select TutorMe from the Student Resources tab on the top toolbar.
Scientific calculators (TI-30 XIIS) and graphing calculators (TI-83) are also available through the Tutor Center. Calculators can be checked out on a per-term basis, and renewed per-term as necessary. Graphing calculators are reserved for students in the calculus series or above.
