About the IU/Brown County
Students in many majors and student organizations benefit from tutoring experience: All areas of education; psychology; criminal justice; neuroscience; children's literature; social work; pre-med track for pediatrics; and much more.
But if you have patience, kindness, and a willingness to help, it doesn't matter what your major is, you can be a tutor.
We tutor kids in reading, writing, math, and social studies, and help them get their homework done.
Each tutoring session begins with checking in on their well being. We then check their grades and see where help is needed. We model positive, respectful interaction by encouraging "please" and "thank you".
When the student's required coursework is done, we help them write creative stories or practice their handwriting.
Most of all, we show them that we care about their success.
