Interested in becoming a tutor?

Tutor's responsibilities include:

Teaching and tutoring are two different things. The tutor will explain a key point that the tutee has not been introduced to by keeping the explanation clear, minimal and to the point.

Tutors will provide an opportunity for the tutee to find and use available resources. This will mean the tutee's textbook, lecture notes, past tests, previous examples, etc.

Tutors will listen very carefully. Is the tutee grasping the concept? Can they explain it easily, or does it take some effort?

STUDENT QUOTES

I have to say that this visit was probably one of the best visits ever. The tutor (Paul) was very helpful and knowledgeable.

I learned about different study tips I can use through the semester.

Today I learned about the proper placement of commas, use of transitions, and how to use a roadmap to identify where the reader is going.

The tutor reviewed the cardiovascular system and my study methods.
