(Tips for making your tutoring session more successful)
1. Sign In
List the class/reason you’re here and what you need help on.
2. Check the Schedule
Tutors have different specialties and different shifts; not all subjects are covered during all tutoring hours -- check the schedule online, in the library, or next to the tutoring center doorway.
3. Peer Tutors
While we are knowledgeable, we don’t know everything. We don’t guarantee grades, or that we’ll always be correct.
4. Guide Your Learning
We will help you work through concepts, suggest ways to approach or fix problems, and help improve your study skills. We will not do problems for you, or give you answers.
5. Come Prepared
Attend class, take notes, read the textbook, try the homework, etc...
6. Improve Your Learning
We will encourage you to work on your own after some assistance so that you can improve your learning, and so that others can receive help.
7. Share the Tutors
Since we are a drop-in center, tutors have to help all students; we appreciate your patience!
8. Respect Each Other
Students and tutors will treat each other with respect and kindness.
9. Help Reduce Noise
Silence your cell phone, take calls outside the center, and keep your voice at an indoor level to respect others’ learning.
10. Computer Use
Computers are for quantitative use. Please do not play games on them, check your Facebook status, etc...
11. Clean Up
Please clean up after yourself before you leave.
