Types of Tutoring Sessions
Individual: Provides one-on-one support for students
Small Group: Tutors assist 2 or more students during a session. Often students find this type of tutoring valuable, as they may benefit from the thoughts, opinions, and ideas of their peers.
Drop-In Tutoring Labs: No appointment needed! These walk-in sessions are perfect for students who may not need weekly support, or are looking for support in addition to individual tutoring.
Supplemental Instruction (SI): These sessions are designed for large groups. Supplemental Instruction is a series of weekly review and discussion sessions attached to specific courses that are historically difficult for students.
What Should I Expect During a Tutoring Session?
During tutoring sessions, tutors will answer questions you have concerning class material and concepts. They will guide the discussion to allow for comprehension and understanding of material presented during a lecture. Additionally, tutors will provide suggestions on how to study and utilize different approaches to reach your academic goals. They may demonstrate how to take notes, read the textbook, and review techniques necessary for academic success.
