Tutoring success tips
Click each item below to see content
Tutoring helps you benefit from classroom instruction and cannot replace your attendance in class; tutors help you understand course material that may be giving you difficulties.
Be on time and keep appointments
Contact the peer tutoring coordinator at 651-450-3693 if you will be late for your appointment or if you need to cancel your appointment; unless notified, your tutor will wait only 15 minutes past your scheduled meeting time; missing two sessions without calling or canceling your appointment repeatedly will cause your tutoring sessions to be discontinued.
Bring your class notes and syllabus to tutoring sessions
Focus on upcoming quizzes and tests
You and your tutor can then concentrate on quiz or test topics, making sure you are fully prepared; tutors cannot help you with a take-home quiz or test.
Get a tutor before you get behind in your coursework
Tutors will have a much easier time helping you when you first start having difficulties with your coursework. If you get too far behind, you may not be able to catch up. If you are thinking about dropping a course, notify your tutor or speak with the peer tutoring coordinator; they may still be able to help you.
Expect to do your own work
Working with a tutor does not guarantee a higher grade. Tutoring is designed to help you improve your study skills. A peer tutor can only help you help yourself. Tutoring is not a replacement for your own motivation to learn.
