How to Make the Most of Tutoring
Come to see a tutor when
- You need help in completing homework questions or problems;
- You want assistance in understanding concepts or discussing ideas;
- You want to know more about study strategies and preparing for tests;
- You believe you are beginning to fall behind and want some help.
Prepare for a tutoring session by bringing
- Class notes;
- Past quizzes or tests that your instructor has authorized you to have;
- Course syllabus;
- Homework or workbook problems (indicate what you have been able to complete yourself since tutors cannot go over every problem in every assignment).
Remember that tutors cannot
- Do homework or assignments for students;
- Make up for missed classes or assignments or for missing prerequisite courses;
- Help with tests (including take-home or make-up tests) for students;
- Provide line-by-line correcting, editing, proofreading, or translating for students;
- Teach new material not included in the coursework;
- Cover a semester’s worth of work in the few days prior to final examinations or tests.
