Tips for Working with Tutors:

  1. Keep your scheduled appointments and be ready to work when your tutor arrives. Write down information about your assignments, have a copy of the study guide and bring your textbook and class notes.  
  2. Your tutor will not do your homework for you. They will help you to learn, not help you to avoid hard work.  
  3. Prepare beforehand. Formulate specific questions.  
  4. Be ready to concentrate.  
  5. Be clear about what you want.  

Early Alert System

It is important for students to be aware of their academic progress in classes early in the semester so there is ample time to correct the situation. View how you can track your progress below:
