How to get the most from your tutoring experience
- Have an objective. Determine what you need/want help with prior to your meeting.
- Come prepared to work. Bring the following items with you: your assignment; grading rubric; your textbook(s); paper and pen; and the hard or electronic copy of the work you have completed on the assignment. If you don’t know where to start, jot down your ideas and bring them with you.
