How to Prepare for a Tutoring Session:

  • Have a question or concept you would like to review with a tutor ready. Enter your question and any important notes in the pre-session survey. This will save you time while you are in a session with a tutor.
  • It is important that you remove any identifying information (your name/teacher's name) from your documents before uploading them into the session. Upload your papers in advance on the pre-session page to maximize your tutoring time.
