1. Math Tutorial Lab

Most of the mathematic classes at The University of Iowa, are taught by brilliant foreign professors.

The math tutorial lab is a place for students to get assistance on whatever math class they may be in, and gives the students the opportunity for one-on-one tutoring. No matter your busy schedule for the week, the lab is open everyday, with varying times, expect for Saturdays.


2. Chemistry Resource Center

One of the hardest classes to take for any science related major, is chemistry. Most end up dropping out of the course within the first few weeks due to the level of difficulty. The chemistry resource center is for teachers assistants to hold office hours available for students to drop by and assist them in succeeding further. With chemistry lectures being 300 students or more, the chemistry resource center gives students the opportunity to engage in smaller group work to get a better understanding for the upcoming exams.


3. Writing Center

Everyone struggles in someway in finishing a paper they aren’t truly interested in, but they finish it to get the best grade possible. If you’re struggling to figure out how to get through a paper or how to go about it, the writing center is available to help students during the week days or to schedule an appointment. The writing center is there for students to help improve their writing skills and critical thinking skills.


4. Engineering Tutoring
