About Academic Success and Tutoring
Every year at BYU-Idaho, the Academic Success and Tutoring Department serves over 15,000 different students from all parts of the university's campus. These students spend an average of 12 hours per semester with individual tutors.
The academic centers are designed to supplement classroom instruction and help students practice, sharpen, and master essential college skills. Students who come to the centers begin to understand the difference one-on-one and group tutoring can make in their academic lives through their close contact with peer tutors. This one-on-one teaching and learning experience is part of the core of the "Spirit of Ricks."
Tutoring is free for BYU-Idaho students. The tutors and assistants in each of the learning centers (Reading, Writing, Math, Tutoring, Presentation Practice, and Study Skills) are trained and paid by BYU-Idaho. Because of this, all students have equal access and can be confident they will receive qualified, professional help in a relaxed atmosphere.
Every semester, over 800 tutors are employed. In addition to the paid tutors, over 800 qualified students volunteer their services as tutors.
