Below are the various tutoring options that are available to students, but you should prepare for each of these before seeing a tutor or attending a group tutoring session. Tutoring is most beneficial when you arrive prepared for the tutoring session. Additionally, your preparation demonstrates to the tutor that you value their time and respect their effort.
Here is how you can get the most out of your tutoring experience:
- Attempt the homework or assignments before going to a tutoring session. Pinpoint the areas that you are having difficulty with.
- Develop an agenda for the session. Include any topics you want to go over and specific questions you have about the material.
- Bring your notes, textbooks, laptop, or any other materials you may need to refer to during the tutoring session.
- Attend your professor’s office hours in addition to seeing your tutor.
