Steps to Tutoring Success

  • If you are having academic difficulties, speak to your professor and determine areas that could benefit from tutoring. 
  • Apply for tutoring early in the semester. Students who wait to access this service may have difficulty catching up.
  • Attend classes regularly and take thorough notes. Tutoring cannot help students who do not attend classes.
  • Do not miss your tutoring appointments. If you are unable to attend an appointment or are going to be late, contact the tutor ahead of time.
  • You cannot approach a tutor to ask for specific information regarding tests and examinations that they may have previously written.
  • When using drop-in services, please do not wait until the day an assignment is due to seek help.
