• Attend Class - Remember a tutoring session should serve as a supplement to class not as a replacement. Tutors are not there to hold lectures or do your homework.
• Think Preventatively - Schedule sessions BEFORE your subject matter becomes a problem. Do not wait until it is too late. Then, nothing can be done. Stop the problem before it starts.
• Use Tutoring Regularly - The best thing that you can do is to use tutoring on a continuous basis, which means once or twice per week (every week). Using tutoring only before test time reduces your chances of utilizing tutoring effectively and decreases your chances of making a good grade on the test. This is especially true if math and science are your weak areas.
• Arrive on Time -Time is a precious commodity. Every minute that you are late to a tutoring session reduces your tutoring time and your chances of getting meaningful, effective help.
• Be prepared - Bring your books, syllabus, notes, and completed assignments. This allows your tutor to know what is required of you. Additionally, completed assignments give your tutor a starting point so that, together, you and your tutor can identify your problem areas and correct them. Always prepare questions for your tutor.
• Ask Questions - The hour is yours. Make the most of it. Never leave a tutoring session with unanswered questions. The tutor is there to help you.
