How to Schedule an Appointment in TutorTrac

About Your Tutor

Your tutor has been approved by the academic department relative to your course and has either been trained in learning skills or has demonstrated proficiency in these areas. The University Tutorial Services places a high priority on hiring tutors with patience, strong communication skills, and a pleasant personality.

Your tutor will challenge you to do your best and will expect you to come to your sessions prepared, focused and directed. They are to serve as your guide as you work to understand the concepts and complete your assigned work. Tutors will not complete assignments for students and are free to terminate a session(s) if they feel you are placing inappropriate expectations on them. Tutors may ask you to consider making changes in your study habits and/or your behaviors related to classroom learning.

Drop-In Learning Labs

If you are unsure about the need for a regular appointment and just want a setting to work on your assignments and ask questions as they arise, you may want to consider attending a Drop-In Learning Lab either in person or via Zoom. These centers have posted hours and do not require you to commit to regular attendance.
