HWC-Tutor.jpgTips for a Successful Tutoring Sessions:             

Start Early      

      We are happy to assist you with study prep, notetaking,  brainstorming, and final revisions, but it’s important that you begin working with a tutor early to keep you from being stressed about pressing deadlines.         

Come prepared       

Have any relevant textbooks, syllabi, class materials, notes, and papers nearby. It is easier for the tutors to provide excellent tutoring service if you bring the appropriate materials to a tutoring session.        

Come with a plan and questions       

      Know what material you would like to cover within that tutoring session. Actively participate in the tutoring sessions by having a list of questions to ask your assigned tutor.        

Familiarize Yourself with the Course Materials       

We strongly encourage you to read the assigned readings and attempt to complete your assignment prior to requesting a tutor so you can take note of specific concepts where you need help. You and your tutor can review these concepts and work through similar problems. However, the tutor cannot do your homework for you nor help you with take-home tests, quizzes, or projects.        

 Use your tutoring time wisely       

      Your time with the tutor is valuable. Try to yourself from all distractions (cellphone, tv, friends/family) while working with your assigned tutor.​
