Tutors Wanted!

The Frank Center is still recruiting tutors for 2022-2023! Tutors get course and RISE credit and a scholarship that begins in their second semester of tutoring. The experience looks great on a resume, too, and many of our graduating tutors note that Center experience helped differentiate them from other candidates in internship and job interviews. Plus, it’s fun! Contact meredith-ringel-ensley@uiowa.edu by February 28.
