How should I use Tutoring?

  • Use tutoring to discuss course materials, ask questions, and practice problems.
  • Go to class! Tutoring is not a substitute for lecture, recitation, or office hours.
  • Tutoring is not a chance to have another student explain the content. Your tutor will not reteach material but will work through concepts, ideas, or problems with you so that you can leave with a great understanding.
  • Do not procrastinate! Sessions the week of the test are less helpful and more crowded.

When should I use Tutoring?

  • Use tutoring "early and often."
  • Don't wait until you're in trouble!
  • Work to stay at the top of the class, to review for a major assignment, and to improve understanding of course materials.
  • Prepare an hour's worth of questions for a session.

What should I bring to Tutoring?

  • Class notes, lecture notes, and textbook.
  • Practice problems or tests distributed by instructor.
  • Anything you want to discuss is fair game - except graded work that has not yet been submitted.
  • A list of questions in order to maximize your tutoring time.

What should I expect from Tutoring?

  • Tutoring isn't a "get-out-jail-free" card.
  • Tutoring supplements the work required by your class.
  • You and your tutor will work through problems and concepts.
  • The tutor will ask questions, rather than give solutions.
  • You should leave a successful session with a better understanding of both course concepts AND what you'll have to do to get ready for your next assignment.
