What You Can Expect From Your Tutoring Experience
Learning Support Services relies primarily on Peer Tutors, students who have successfully completed the course for which you are requesting assistance.
- You can expect weekly meetings with a peer tutor to review homework or class material.
- You can expect the opportunity to discuss and practice those portions of a class or homework assignments that are most troublesome for you.
- You can expect the opportunity to engage in an information exchange from a learning style or perspective different from the class and tailored to your needs.
- You can expect the opportunity to ask questions for which there may not be adequate time in class or which you may be uncomfortable asking.
What Not to Expect From Your Tutoring Experience
- Tutors will NOT do your work for you.
- A tutoring session is NOT a substitute for attending class or labs.
- A tutoring session is NOT a substitute for completing assigned work in a timely manner.
- Meeting with a tutor is NOT a substitute for meeting with your professor.
- Working with a tutor will NOT automatically result in an “A” for the class; however, those students who utilize tutoring as a means for thoroughly understanding class material and keeping up with assignments, generally improve their grades.
