Request Tutor Funding

UPDATE: In line with ISU's COVID-19 Response, MSA will still require a meeting to approve tutor funding; however, the meeting will be virtual.

The Multicultural Student Affairs Tutoring Program is designed to provide academic assistance for African American, Latina/o American, Asian American, Native American, Pacific Islander/Native Hawaiian, and Multiracial students at Iowa State. Funding for group tutoring is available for the Fall and Spring semesters.  MSA will cover the costs for 1 group tutor.
 
MSA will subsidize funding for group tutoring for the Fall and Spring semesters.
 
How do I get a tutor?
The process to get a tutor is very easy! All you need to do is follow these simple steps:
  1. Go to tutoring.iastate.edu and click "Sign-In to Your Tutoring Profile". You will need to log in with your Net-ID and password.
  2. Fill in the required personal information.
  3. Click "Request Tutoring" in green.
  4. Read through the Tutee Application Agreement.
  5. Choose the course you would like to receive tutoring in. Additional courses may be added on your "Home" tab after each course request is completed. Note: MSA will provide funding for only one course.
  6. Select "Multicultural Student Affairs" as your funding source, then meet with an MSA staff member in person to get funding approved. See available hours below.
  7. Edit your schedule. Make sure to take all outside activities (clubs, meetings, intramurals, etc.) into consideration when marking available times. That said, the more times you mark as available, the better your chances of being matched with a tutoring group quickly.
  8. Click Edit next to schedule and select your free times at the schedule shown. (Note: the more free time you indicate, the better chances you have of getting assigned into a group!)
  9. Click "Submit"
  10. You will receive an email from your tutor if you are assigned to a tutoring group. Check your spam filter and junk mail periodically.
  11. After you submit the application, you need to click here to request to speak with a staff member and get your request approved. In most instances, your wait will be brief. In the event of a rush of people, the assistant greeting you can give you an estimated wait time. You can plan for the approval discussion to last 5-10 minutes.
