Things to Remember

  • Have your book or materials with you.
  • Be prepared to talk about your assignment. 
  • Have a specific question or area that you want to work on.
  • Understand that we are here to point the way to the answers, so don’t ask the teacher to give you answers to your homework.
  • Sign up for one 30-minute appointment and NOT two consecutive 30-minute appointments.
    • It's good to get advice from your tutor, go back and do the work on your own, and then make another appointment if you need to. We'd also like all students to be able to make appointments.
