What to expect from a tutoring appointment?

The purpose of tutoring is to help you become an active, independent learner. Working with a tutor can enrich your understanding of the course material, help you focus on what is important in the class, and help you apply better study methods.

Tutors can:

  • Review and help clarify assignments
  • Help you understand concepts that the instructor has already presented in class
  • Provide you with additional examples and practice problems
  • Help you understand the textbook and apply the information

Tutors cannot:

  • Do your homework for you
  • Guarantee an error-free assignment or a better grade; it is still your responsibility to do the work
  • Teach new material missed in class; tutoring is not a substitute for classroom instruction
  • Help with take-home or make-up tests

Appointment Policy?

Tutoring will be stopped in the following instances

  • When the student missed 2 tutoring sessions without reasonable notifications (reinstatement will be considered about consultation with the Director of the Office of the Tutoring and Learning Center)
  • When tutoring is not helping the student progress
