Tutoring

5 Tips to Effectively Use Our Tutors

  1. Everyone benefits from tutoring. It’s a misconception that tutoring is only for struggling students. Even great students can improve with tutoring and most are great because of tutoring. So take advantage!

  2. Come early and come often. Meeting with a tutor at the start of the semester and visiting once a week will reinforce the skills learned in class, build the relationship with the tutor and give you time to really polish those assignments. There’s very little a tutor can do hours before an exam or the night before a paper is due.

  3. Build a team of tutors. Students are encouraged to work tutors from different subject areas to maximize success. You can work with an accounting tutor and a writing tutor on the same business paper. Each will bring a different focus to your work.

  4. Bring a friend. You’re more likely to keep visiting the tutors if you bring a friend. Tutors often work with small groups of students from the same class. This can easily turn into a study group that will provide support well after the official tutoring session has ended.

  5. Have realistic expectations.  If you think one meeting with a tutor is going to give you all the content of a class, you’re going to be disappointed and probably never come back. Come with clear and attainable goals, like review a chapter, to organize the flow of a paper, or practice a particular math concept. If you stick with it, you’ll see gains before you know it.
