Tutoring and help

The purpose of the Statistics Tutorial Lab (University Library Commons, Group Area E) is to make extra help available in introductory statistics courses. Sometimes your instructor's or TA's office hours don't mesh well with your schedule. Sometimes you may be reluctant to ask your own teacher for help. The Statistics Tutorial Lab is here to help make up for such difficulties!

The courses that we can help you with are:

  • STAT:1010, Statistics and Society
  • STAT:1020, Elementary Statistics and Inference
  • STAT:1030, Statistics for Business
  • STAT:2020, Probability & Statistics for Engineering & Physical Science

The Lab offers support in three subject areas: Financial Mathematics, Fundamentals of Actuarial Mathematics, and Mathematical Statistics. The lab hours for Fall 2024 will be posted in early September.  If you need help now please check out these youtube videos prepared by one of our students, Nathan Munshower, BS Actuarial Science. May 2024. 


Financial Mathematics (ACTS:3080), Fundamentals of Actuarial Mathematics (ACTS:4130), and Mathematical Statistics (STAT:3100 and STAT:4100). It is led by upperclass actuarial students who are available to assist you with coursework, share learning strategies, and introduce you to resources that help your succeed.

You are welcome to drop in either online or in person throughout the semester. The Lab also has an ICON site where you can connect with tutors or even ask questions anonymously. 

If you wish to enroll in the ICON site but have not been enrolled, please contact us at actuarial-science@uiowa.edu

Help will be scheduled for: 

FM session (ACTS:3080)  

Life Con I session (ACTS:4180)

Math Stat session (STAT:3100 and 4100 sequences)


You make private arrangements for individual instruction, and pay the students directly.

Tutor Iowa is an excellent resource to find academic assistance and mentoring for your University of Iowa courses.

The Mathematics Tutorial Laboratory is a resource offered to students by the Department of Mathematics. The goal of the Math Lab is to support students' efforts by providing an environment where they may receive one-on-one help from a tutor who is ready to answer their questions. Students will also find a variety of computer applications and other resources to develop and enhance their understanding.
