Expect to do the following when you come in to work with a tutor:
- Discuss the material
- Go over the assignment
- Express your concerns
- Receive hints and suggestions for problem solving, organizing and planning strategies
In addition, expect the tutor to ask you clarifying questions, to find out what you know and what you don’t know. That way the tutor can get to know you and determine what strategies would be most helpful. The tutor will expect you to work and to participate in the tutoring process. Do not expect the tutor to do the work for you. Always bring your textbook(s), assignment sheet, class notes, paper, software, and syllabi.
You may stay at the ASC Tutoring even after you have finished working with a tutor. It’s a comfortable, quiet place to study or use computers to assist with assignments. The ASC Tutoring Code of Conduct limits behavior that is distracting and not conducive to study.
Most of the time. Writing tutoring always takes place on a private one-on-one basis. Tutoring for many specific classes is also offered on a one-on-one basis. However, because of the exceptionally high demand for math tutoring and certain specific classes, one-on-one tutoring may not be available in these areas.
