How to Make the Most of Your Appointment:
Come prepared, ready to actively engage.
- Do some studying beforehand so you know what material you do and don't know.
- Have a plan in mind for the session.
- Prepare specific questions and concerns.
- Bring any necessary course materials.
Know what to expect.
- The tutors have been trained to help you succeed in a given subject area.
- The tutor is a supplemental resource for you, someone who will guide you in the right direction and challenge you to succeed on your own two feet.
- Don't expect the tutor to re-lecture course material.
- Don't expect the tutor to do your work for you.
The time you spend with a tutor is only as useful as you make it. Your effort and engagement make tutoring sessions all the more beneficial to you. The tutor is willing. Are you?
Note: Every time you meet with a tutor, a brief report is sent to your professor to show that you are making an extra effort to succeed.
