How does tutoring work?

To be tutored through the CAT program, you'll need to complete a Tutor Request form. You can pick one up at the CAT offices in Pocatello (Rendezvous Center, Room 323) or Idaho Falls (CHE, Room 220) and bring it in to one of our offices. Or you can complete the pdf form and email it to cat@isu.edu.

After we receive your application, we'll see if we have any tutors available for that course whose schedules seem to work with yours. If we do, you'll get an email including your tutor's name, email address, and phone number. The two of you will get in touch with one another and together, with other members of your group, you'll decide on a time and place to meet. If we do not have a tutor available for that course, we'll work on recruiting one and we'll email you to let you know that that's what we're doing.

If the class you're being tutored in is 3 credits or more, you can have up to 3 hours of tutoring per week. Some students choose to use all available hours; others are happy with one or two.

Tutors are not substitutes for attending class. They will not do your homework for you. They have been trained to guide you through coursework so that you can build your own understanding of the processes involved. Plan on attending your classes, reading your textbooks, and starting the assigned homework on your own. Your tutor can best help you when you come prepared with specific questions about the work you've already done.

Still have questions? Read our Program Policies, and feel free to email us at cat@isu.edu!
