What to Expect from Tutoring
Tutoring is a chance to talk about your course content and assignment(s). Expect your tutor to engage you in a positive conversation about the work. Come prepared with questions about the topic you’d like to discuss.
Tutoring is an opportunity for hands-on practice with immediate feedback. Your tutor will model problem solving, encourage you to work through examples, ask you to demonstrate what you know, and many other activities that help your build your confidence with the material.
Tutoring is a safe space where it’s okay to say, “I don’t know.” The goal is to progress from “I don’t know” to “I can do this!”
Tutoring is an invaluable addition to your own study/homework time but not a replacement for it. Do not expect to complete an assignment during your tutoring session.
Tutoring is an opportunity to share ideas with someone who is an expert at being a successful student, but your peer tutor is not an expert at teaching the material. Your tutor is your #1 resource for helping you work with the content, but your instructor and course materials are your #1 resource for content. Tutoring is not a replacement for active class attendance.
Tutoring is a place to gain understanding of the material on which you’ll be tested, but it is not a place to work on take-home quizzes, tests, or exams. Your tutor cannot help you with these, in accordance with JSRCC Policy No. 2-7 Academic Honesty.
Tutoring is a space for learners, but we cannot accommodate visitors or children.
