Student Expectations

To ensure each tutoring session is beneficial and productive, students should do their class assignments before visiting. Students should come prepared with all necessary materials (textbook, syllabus, class notes, writing material, etc.) and have specific questions prepared for their tutors.

These are a few things to keep in mind when you seek the help of tutors:

  • Tutors will not do your homework.
  • Tutors will not give you the answers.
  • Tutors will help you review your work.
  • Tutors will explain concepts, rules and methods that you do not understand.
