Getting the Most from Tutoring

Welcome! Now that you have made an appointment to meet with a student tutor, here are some tips to help you get the best possible results from your tutoring session:

  • Prepare for your tutoring session. Know what you want to cover. Bring pertinent texts, notes, assignments and—most of all—your questions. The more specific your purpose, the more on target a tutor can be.
  • Be on time. A tutor will wait for 15 minutes. After that, the appointment is cancelled.
  • If you are unable to keep an appointment, please call 253.879.3404 and let us know whether you will be late or wish cancel altogether. Sometimes another student is waiting.
  • Do not expect a tutor to do your assigned work. A tutor can increase your understanding and support your problem solving efforts, but a tutor cannot do tasks for you.

Our tutors are eager to conference with you. Let's work together to make the most of your learning experience at Puget Sound.
