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.
