How To Make The Most Of Tutoring Services

Come to see a tutor when you need:

  • help in completing homework questions or problems;
  • assistance in understanding concepts or discussing ideas;
  • to know more about study strategies and preparing for tests;
  • help to keep you from falling behind.

Prepare for a tutoring session by bringing:

  • Textbooks
  • Class notes
  • Past quizzes or tests that your instructor has authorized you to have;
  • Course syllabus;
  • Homework or workbook problems (indicate what you have been able to complete yourself since tutors cannot go over every problem in every assignment).

Remember that tutors cannot:

  • Do homework or assignments for students;
  • Make up for missed classes or assignments or for missing prerequisite courses;
  • Provide help for take home tests;
  • Provide line-by-line correcting, editing, proofreading, or translating for students;
  • Teach new material not included in the coursework;
