What should I do to prepare for a tutoring session?
- Be on time for your scheduled appointment
- Bring materials such as notes, syllabus, assignments, rubrics, etc.
- Write down specific questions you have about the subject or assignment
- Do not expect your tutor to do your work. Tutors are not permitted to contact your instructors, edit writing assignments, do your homework, or assist with take-home exams
Contact your tutor directly or call Tutoring Services at (608) 757-7666 if you need to cancel and/or re-schedule your appointment (at least 2 hours in advance if possible).
Missing 2 or more tutoring sessions without prior communication may result in cancelled services for the semester.
