Your Math Tutoring Session

Tips for success with a Math Tutor:

  • Read the section and chapter before you come to the tutoring session.
  • Bring past quizzes or tests with you.
  • Try to solve some of the problems before you arrive. Save your work.
  • Have some questions in mind when you arrive.
  • The best time for a tutoring session is early in the semester when you first have questions.

What to expect:

  • If no one is waiting, you can spend as much time as you need with a math tutor. If the tutor is occupied with another student, expect a 5-15 minute wait.
  • If other students are working on the same section/charter as you, the tutor may work with a small group (2-3 people).
  • A courteous, professional and knowledgeable tutor will assist you. in some cases, student tutors who have the completed the same course at Pellissippi State will be available.
  • Tutors can provide additional understanding of concepts or ideas.

What not to expect:

  • A grading service.
  • A quick fix.
  • Homework done by the tutor.
  • To understand a semester's worth of work on the day before the final.
