CS Tutoring Guidelines
Math Tutoring Guidelines
Tutors will help students in MA100, MA112, MA127, MA130,
MA160, and MA165. The tutor may also be of assistance to
other students needing help with mathematical skills. Kim
Bragg is also prepared to help students in MA110, MA120, and
bring your text and notes with you to tutoring sessions. You
will find your session with the tutor more helpful if you narrow
your questions in advance: Is there a particular problem you
canít do? A specific concept you donít understand?
Where does the reading become confusing?
will not do homework for you, but rather will listen to you in
order to determine what you are having difficulty understanding
and help you understand the methods and concepts involved.
When several students need help, the tutor will limit the time
spent with each student (about 10 minutes). Students should
then review what was discussed and try some problems on their own
while waiting for another turn.
The tutor is only expected to help during the times stated above.
Recognize that the tutor is your peer, not an instructor.
There may be some topics in your course that lie beyond the
tutorís expertise. When that occurs and if time permits,
the tutor may be able to read and work through the section with
you. Your instructor is also happy to meet with you and help
you understand. Consult your syllabus for office hours!
