About Us: What is Academic Tutoring?
Tutoring for non-math and non-English classes is available to UVU students FREE of charge.
Whether students need an occasional hint or a full explanation of difficult concepts, tutorial assistance is available on a drop-in basis. Tutors for many UVU courses are available in Academic Tutoring, LA 201, Monday-Thursday from 8 am - 9 pm, Friday from 8 am - 5 pm, and Saturday from 10 am - 3 pm; students can drop in at any time during those hours. Academic Tutoring is also a great place to study!
Students can sign up for one (1) hour a week of one-on-one tutoring with one of our tutors. This is a great opportunity to get some individualized tutoring--FREE! Check at the Academic Tutoring front desk for more information. You can also call 801-863-5376 to sign up.
Students may also sign up to meet with a volunteer tutor on a weekly basis. Sign up at the front desk and provide all the necessary information, so you can be matched with a volunteer tutor for your course.
Mentored Study Groups
Mentored Study Groups (MSGs) are offered for those courses considered high risk and provides regularly scheduled, out-of-class, peer facilitated sessions. MSG leaders attend class sessions, take notes, read all assigned material, and conduct one or more 50-minute MSG sessions per week. MSGs integrate how-to-learn with what-to-learn through collaborative learning techniques.
Please email email@example.com for online tutoring. Online tutoring provides another choice for UVU students needing academic assistance. Students enrolled in Distance Education courses or who are unable to meet with a tutor on campus for live tutorials can log onto the Internet and interact with tutors and other students.
