What is one-on-one appointment tutoring?
Appointments are 50-minute sessions with a trained peer tutor. Together, you and your tutor focus on your specific concerns for a specific course.
Why it works
Our tutors are trained to provide you assistance, but they do not do the work for you. Your tutor's goal is to build your confidence with the material and prepare you to be able to handle the material on your own.
- 50 minute sessions allow time for you to cover multiple questions with your tutor
- Your tutor will adapt instruction to your pace and ability
- Tutoring sessions are customized to meet your needs... so talk to your tutor about what you need!
Absence/ cancellation policy
If you cancel a session less than 24 hours in advance or fail to show up for a session, it will be counted as an absence. If you are absent TWICE, you will be blocked from creating additional appointment sessions. Walk-in labs and SI sessions will still be available to you.
