Welcome to the BYU-Idaho Tutoring Center


The Tutoring Center is for students who desire help beyond their regular classroom instruction. Individual, group, or walk-in sessions are available. Tutors are chosen from students who have succeeded academically in the class, who have completed a tutor training program, and who have been approved by their department.

To sign up and schedule tutoring appointments, click "Tutor Request" link above.

NOTE: We don't typically do tutoring for the Summer Session, but if you would like to make a request, please contact Brother Gentry at gentrym@byui.edu.
