a Successful Tutoring Session
- Don’t procrastinate. We are happy to assist you with study prep, note
taking, brainstorming, and final revisions, but please do not wait until
the last minute to request tutoring services. It is important to remember
that tutoring sessions are limited in time, so plan accordingly.
- Come prepared to tutoring
sessions. Bring any relevant
textbooks, syllabi, class materials, notes, and papers. It is easier for
the tutors to provide excellent tutoring service if you bring the
appropriate materials to a tutoring session. Additionally, it is important
for your tutor to refer back to any relevant materials provided by your
- Read your textbook and any
relevant material provided by your instructor. It is difficult for you to understand the course
material if you have not read assigned pages from the textbook.
Additionally, the tutors cannot provide assistance if you have not read
the appropriate material(s).
- Come with a plan and questions. Know what material you would like to cover within
that tutoring session. Actively participate in the tutoring sessions by
having a list of questions to ask your assigned tutor.
- Tutors will not do your homework
for you. We strongly encourage you to
attempt to complete your assignment prior to requesting a tutor so you can
take note of specific concepts where you need help. You and your tutor can
review these concepts and work through similar problems. However, the
tutor cannot do your homework for you nor help you with take-home tests,
quizzes, or projects.
- Be Respectful. Do not talk on your cell phone or cause
distractions while working with your assigned tutor.
