Expectations for Tutors

  • Guide the tutees in how to be more INDEPENDENT learners, to RECEIVE CLARIFICATION, learn examples, to PRACTICE MATERIAL, to summarize concepts, as well as learn the skills essential to being a SUCCESSFUL STUDENT.
  • Understand their environment and keep the atmosphere relaxed but structured and conducive to learning. Tutors establish rapport and a POSITIVE WORKING RELATIONSHIP with tutees.
  • Arrive PREPARED, ON-TIME AND INTERESTED in each student’s concerns. Great tutors are responsible and manage time well within the session. Be PRESENT, PUNCTUAL, PREPARED, AND PROACTIVE for all sessions. Honor all scheduled appointments, except in times of emergency, and cancel any appointments as soon as possible.
  • Respect and maintain confidentiality; abide by FERPA guidelines
  • DEMONSTRATE professionalism, patience, encouragement, competence and strong communication skills.
  • Make appropriate referrals to other RESOURCES on campus.
  • Tutors will explain to the student the LEARNING STRATEGIES and PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS that are necessary to comprehend the material. The tutor will set GOALS with the student at the beginning of the session and will do their best to accomplish these goals by the end of the session.
