Additional Information

Tutors’ names and contact information will be posted on the Tutor Iowa website. Tutors and students negotiate appointments and fees privately. Tutor Iowa is not responsible for the payment of tutors.

Tutors must notify the Tutor Iowa administrator if there are any changes in contact information, or any additions or deletions from the approved course tutoring list. Tutors will be contacted periodically to update the website.

It is against UI policy for graders or teaching assistants to give private instruction for pay in any course with which they are associated. If the Tutor Iowa program learns that a tutor may have encouraged, advised, or assisted a student in any form of cheating, the matter will be reported to the appropriate department(s), in accordance with the academic misconduct procedures outlined in Policies and Regulations Affecting Students.

The application form is the beginning of the approval process. Additional information will be requested in the future.
