Psychological and Brain Sciences (PBS) and Indiana University have resources designed to help you succeed in tough classes. Explore resources below and talk to your professors and academic advisors to make sure you're using all of the assistance available to you.
Tutors for Psychology + Neuroscience courses
PBS has established a volunteer tutoring program as a resource for students enrolled in Psychology and Neuroscience courses. Based on your needs, you will be matched with a tutor that will be available to you 2-4 hours a week for homework help, study tips, and helpful information.
If you would like to be matched with a tutor, please fill out the online Student Tutor Request Form.
Tips: Time with a tutor is not a substitute for attending class and studying an adequate amount of time on your own. Speak with your professor or the teaching assistant to assess whether your study strategy is likely to work well for their class.
Ask questions of any potential tutor, including:
- What do you think is the best way to study for this class?
- What will we do during tutoring sessions? What should I do to prepare?
- How often do you suggest we meet? What days and times are you available to meet?
- How many students have you tutored for this course in the past?
