Make the Most of Your Appointment

SSC Students Expectations:

Leave a brief note for your tutor when making your appointment so that the tutor can be better prepared.

Bring your textbook, syllabus, notes, handouts, current assignments and any other work that you would normally bring to class.

Prepare for your tutoring session. Read your text, begin your homework, bring your assignment sheet or rough draft - the tutor cannot help you with a blank page.

Participate actively in all aspects of the tutoring session. Ask questions, complete practice problems, discuss any and all problems you may be having with your subject.

Understand that tutoring is a two-way street, one in which students play an active role.
