Arrive prepared to your tutoring session with relevant questions, materials and texts. Tutors will do their best to explain material, but the more prepared you are to ask questions and guide the session, the better the tutor will be able to address your concerns. Keep the following points in mind when preparing for your tutoring appointment:
Attend class. Students who do not regularly attend class are not eligible to receive tutoring. The tutoring sessions are to enhance the information you receive through attending class, not to replace it.
Read the material. It is not the tutor's responsibility to lecture to you on material you have not read, but rather to help you gain an understanding of the material that you have read.
Try to work assigned problems prior to the session. You will learn to solve problems more quickly if you have tried to work them out before the tutoring session. This allows you the opportunity to ask questions about mistakes you may have made.
Bring notes and handouts from class, as well as your books, to the tutoring appointment. A variety of material means a variety of avenues to better understand the material.
Tutors do not do your homework. Tutors will work sample problems, review problems that you have worked, discuss notes and lecture material, help formulate ideas for papers and assignments, and review for exams, but they will not do your homework for you.
Be prompt for your tutoring appointment and expect the same from your tutor.
Be courteous during your tutoring appointment and expect the same from your tutor.
Work in an environment that is comfortable for both you and the tutor. Always use the ARC rooms. If these locations are booked, the ARC can arrange a location for the session.
