Tutors and tutoring policy

All tutoring center tutors are peer tutors. Peer tutors are faculty-recommended and extensively trained students who have demonstrated both strong subject proficiency as well as an aptitude for communicating complex concepts in a clear manner. Our tutors also possess an enthusiasm for learning and enjoy helping others.

The tutors are instructed to help students become more independent in their academic pursuits. Tutors are not permitted to correct or complete problems or assignments for students, proofread or edit student papers, or teach students course content because they have been absent from class.

Prepare for successful tutoring sessions

Our primary goal is to help students become independent learners. Students will make the most of our tutoring services if they do the following:

  • Bring their assignment, textbook and syllabus with them
  • Prepare specific questions for their tutor
  • Begin their assignment (or at least try to)
  • Bring a positive attitude and a willingness to try

Tutors will do the following for students:

  • Review rules, concepts and types of problems with them
  • Ensure that they are following the directions of their assignment correctly
  • Find patterns of errors in their paper
  • Give them valuable feedback on their paper
  • Help them to better organize their writing
  • Help them to find the answer themselves
  • Offer them study tips
  • Offer them encouragement
  • Direct them to important self-help resources
