Tutoring session tips

In order to get the most out of your tutoring sessions, you should come prepared to discuss your course material.

Here are a few tips to make each session a success:

  • Have your notes and textbooks with you.
  • Have your course syllabus and handouts or assignment instructions with you.
  • Attempt the work prior to your appointment and identify where you need help.
  • Don't expect us to provide answers to questions (We will help explain concepts but you need to complete all your work).
  • Don't wait until the last minute to get help.
  • Be active during tutoring sessions and work with your tutor.
  • Tell us if we are moving too quickly.
