CS Tutoring Lab Services

The CS department provides one-on-one tutoring in which CS tutors, hired by the department, are available to assist students. Tutors are available in the CS tutoring room (230 Colonial Hall Pocatello) or in Idaho Falls. Course syllabi typically list the tutors who are assigned to a course, their contact information, the hours they are available for tutoring, and their locations. However, most of the tutors are able to provide assistance at least to the lower-level CS courses, so if you have questions, please feel free to stop by the tutoring rooms. Note that the tutoring rooms can also serve as a place for CS students to work at a desk between classes. You may also arrange with a tutor to do a Zoom session, depending on their schedule, but in person tutoring generally works better.


Before visiting the tutors, it is a good idea to read the Tutor Etiquette Page.

To schedule or find a time when a tutor is available check the CS Tutor Schedule.
