Tutoring FAQ

How Can Tutors Help Me?

Tutors can help clarify concepts/topics you’re not understanding, provide study strategies to make your study time more effective, and help sharpen your writing skills for stronger academic essays. Tutors will not give answers to assignments or write your essay for you.

How Can I Prepare For a Tutoring Session?

The more effort you put towards your success on your own, the better your tutoring session will go. Tutoring is not a substitute for attending class and individual studying. Bring all materials such as textbooks, notes, and assignments. In addition to relevant material,  bringing a list of questions for your tutor will help to give a purpose to the session.

What Can I Expect During a Tutoring Session?

Tutors are trained to ask open-ended questions to promote critical thinking and participation. You must have a willingness to work and actively participate in your session.
