A Typical Tutoring Session

Tutors work with tutees to provide the following:

  • Clarification on concepts
  • Review homework and class notes
  • Discuss class content
  • Ask questions
  • Share study strategies and resources
  • Exam preparation

Tutors are hired and trained by the office of Learning Resources. Effective tutors are welcomed and encouraged to return as tutors for additional semesters. Effective tutoring: 

  • Is a collaboration between the tutor and the tutee (student) where the tutee can build and develop their skills and knowledge of a particular course.
  • Allows the tutee to become an engaged and self-disciplined learner.
  • Is to be as comfortable as possible for students who come for assistance. The atmosphere is to be friendly, interesting, and understanding of the anxiety many students experience about a course as well as asking for help.
