What to bring to your tutoring session
  • Syllabus and/or copy of your assignment
  • Any ideas or work already completed on the assignment
  • Class textbook and notes
  • Anything else that might help tutors better assist you

 

What to expect from a tutoring session
  • Assessment of how you’re currently doing in the class
  • Identification and focus on what needs to be accomplished during the tutoring session (for example, are you studying for an exam, completing a math assignment or making an outline for an upcoming speech?)
  • Tips on how to address test anxiety, effective study and learning techniques as well as time management strategies

 

Words of advice from our tutors
  • Please don’t wait until the day of your exam or the day your paper is due to seek out tutoring. Make sure you have plenty of time available to have a meaningful tutoring session in addition to any work you need to complete on your own prior to the due date. 
  • Don’t wait until you get behind in a class to come to the center; do it before you get behind. Especially when you know you are going to have a difficult course load or class during the semester.
