Preparing for a Tutoring Session

In order to get the most from your time with a tutor, there are some things you should do to prepare.

  • Attend class
  • Take good notes
  • Start on assigned work prior to tutoring
  • Bring class materials (textbook, class notes, etc.) with you to tutoring
  • Be prepared to discuss the following with your tutor
    • What has been covered in class and the work you have done
    • What do you understand
    • What are you having difficulty with
    • How the tutor can best help you this session

Please do not plan to have a tutor sit with you while you do your homework. This is not tutoring. If you aren't having difficulty with any material, your tutor can help you review previous material and/or preview what's coming up.
