How to Prepare for a Tutoring Session

To make the most of your tutoring time:

  • Schedule your appointment at least 3 days before your due date. This will ensure that you have time to make revisions.
  • Before your appointment, think about what you would like to focus on or accomplish during your session.
  • Bring your materials with you: the assignment requirements, your work and anything else that might be useful.

What to Expect in a Tutoring Session

Here are some things to expect during your tutoring session:

  • We will ask you to set the agenda for your session. Don't;t worry, if you are not sure where to start, we can help with that too!
  • Be prepared to participate actively: to think, write, and talk about your work.
  • We will treat you with respect, respond to your concerns, and respect your confidentiality.
  • We may suggest new strategies to help you develop as a thinker and writer, for both your current and future academic work.
