Tutoring Services Mythbusters

MYTH: Tutors have/will give me all the answers.

FACT: Tutors do not have all the answers. While they can help with basics and more, it is at times challenging for them to answer specific questions without preparation. Use the "What would you like to work on today?" section on the appointment form as a guide for helping your tutor come better equipped for your session. Similarly, tutors do not have ready-made answers to quizzes, tests, and exams.

MYTH: Tutors will do/fix my work for me.

FACT: Tutors cannot do/fix your homework for you; however, depending on the subject and your level of attention and participation, they will help you with a host of study areas including topic comprehension, definition, illustration, preparation, computation, practice, quiz, review, analyze, study tips, etc.

MYTH: Tutors will have/know what I need for my session.

FACT: Tutors cannot know what you need and greatly appreciate students who prep for sessions with specific questions about assigned reading, problems or in-class instruction, as well as bring necessary tools (books, notes, formulas, calculators, assignments, etc.).

Also, remember that it is difficult to learn everything in one session. Give yourself and your tutor time to make your tutoring sessions productive.
