Why is tutoring important?
Tutoring is important because it expands the knowledge of the tutee as well as reinforces the knowledge of the tutor.
When should I see a tutor?
Students should see a tutor after they have reviewed a chapter, done problems, reviewed their notes, and still find themselves stuck, or struggling with a certain subject. Remember, talk to your professor first if you are having difficulty understanding material in a particular course.
What is the role of a tutor?
- Most people see a tutor as someone who teaches, and helps students understand concepts.
- We also see a tutor as a coach, someone who teaches students about learning styles and how to retain information.
- Tutors also act as a sounding board for ideas about studying and learning.
