Tutoring Tips

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).
  • Turn off your cell phone before your tutoring session begins.
  • 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.
  • Ask for help.  Don’t be shy; tutors are here to assist you.
  • Be sure to eat before you come to the Tutoring Center.
  • Get adequate sleep the night before.
  • Think positively!
  • 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.
