What to bring to a session

Bring any materials that will help you and your tutor, such as your textbook, syllabus, notes, handouts, and current assignments.

Preparing for a session

Make a list of questions you have about the material or need clarification on after reading your textbook and reviewing your class notes. Highlight areas you want to review with your tutor.

If you are working on a writing assignment, bring all of your materials to work on with your tutor, such as the assignment, pre-writing notes, outlines, rough draft, etc.

You can leave a note for your tutor explaining what you would like to work on when making an appointment online.

During the session

Let your tutor know what your goal is for the session by determining what concepts you would like to cover. Also consider what material you would like to review and practice.

Ask for tips on how to study for the class and actively take part in the session. Once you have worked through material with the tutor, do a practice problem on your own and explain your understanding to the tutor.

Your tutor can help clarify parts of the lecture or text, assist in solving problems, and work with you to find the answers. Your tutor cannot help with take-home exams.
