Students should come to the Tutoring Center prepared to become active, independent learners. The following tips will help you, the student, reach your goal of academic success:
- Bring all applicable class materials (textbooks, notes, handouts, calculators, etc.)
- Know your student number (901-XX-XXXX).
- Remember to turn off your cell phone before your tutoring session starts so that your tutoring session is productive and successful.
- Plan ahead – the tutor will be able to assist you more appropriately if you do not wait until the day of or day before the test or deadline.
- Come to your tutoring session prepared to work on something specific.
- Be sure to eat before you come to the Tutoring Center! (So you will be able to focus on your tutoring session).
- Get adequate sleep the night before.
- Think positively!
- Ask for help. Don’t be shy; tutors are here to assist you.
- Make sure you’ve made an attempt to complete your work yourself, and that you have at least a basic understanding of what you need help with. The tutor’s job is to prepare you to do your work independently, not to do your work for you.
- Consider making an appointment – even though drop-in tutoring is available without an appointment being necessary, it may help to meet with the tutor in advance and plan your session(s).
