What should I expect from a tutoring session?
Come prepared with all necessary course materials, including textbooks, assignment details, and class notes so your tutor is familiar with the content. Together you'll review information and narrow down what you need help with. You can work with a tutor once, twice, or as many times as you need to help you be successful in your courses.
