Why should I get tutoring? I’m not failing!
Many students believe that tutoring is something someone only does when having problems in class. This is not true. Tutoring is a way to study and understand concepts in an interactive fashion. Not only does a tutoring session help a student's brain process information more effectively, a tutor can also help identify the areas a student doesn’t know and assist in developing techniques to better learn information.
Don’t wait until there is a problem! Meet with a tutor or join a study group early during a semester in order to stay on top of your work and one step ahead of any problems.
What happens during a tutoring session?
Tutors generally let students lead sessions by asking what they would like to work on and using the materials they have brought. Tutors usually use this questioning approach to guide students in their learning.
How can I explain what I need to a tutor?
Even if you are unsure of the issues you may be having, tutors are trained to help you identify your needs. Problems can vary from a small part of a course to your overall study skills and habits. A tutor can assist with discovering and helping you overcome academic road blocks so you can be successful in the future.
