Academic support

Get help with your coursework

The Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences (PBS) and Indiana University have resources designed to help students succeed in tough classes. Explore them below and talk to your professors and academic advisors to make sure you're using all of the resources that are right for 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, or otherwise.

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. Go talk to 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 & times are you available to meet?
  • How many students have you tutored for this course in the past?
