When to see a tutor

  • You feel you are beginning to fall behind
  • You want to discuss concepts and ideas
  • You need help with homework
  • You need to study for a quiz or test
  • You want to improve your study skills and habits

 

What to bring to a session

  • Textbooks
  • Notes
  • Past quizzes or tests
  • Class syllabus
  • Homework
  • Troubled workbook problems and your questions
  • A POSITIVE ATTITUDE!

Do’s (before a session)

  • Read the class syllabus.
    Do you understand the requirements for the class?

  • Visit your instructor during office hours.
    Ask your questions and discuss your concerns.

  • Read assigned chapters, and review your class notes.
    If something is not clear, mark it or write it down to discuss with your tutor. Be specific.

  • Do your homework BEFORE the session.
    Complete as much as you can, and bring specific questions and problems to your tutor.
  • Be familiar with the material.
    Before using tutoring, review class materials. It will maximize the effectiveness of your tutoring time.

Don’ts

  • Don’t expect your tutor to do homework for you.
    They are only there to help you learn how to do your homework. Learning is a process; if you do not do your own homework, you do not learn!

  • Don’t expect that a tutor will reteach the course for you.
    They are not instructors.

  • Don’t expect that a tutor will readily give you all the answers.
    Their job is to help you find them.

  • Don’t wait until the day before a test to get help.
    You do yourself a disservice by not preparing ahead. Learning takes time, effort and planning.
