Talk to Your Students About Tutoring

Here are some talking points you can use when talking to your students about working with a tutor.

  • Remind students that everyone can benefit from talking about their work with someone else
  • Encourage students to ask for help early -- don't wait until too close to the due date or the end of the semester
  • Share tips for a successful tutoring session
    • Bring materials - syllabus, assignment, book, handouts, readings
    • Read the assignment ahead of time and think about what questions they might have about it
  • Tell students about all the options for help
    • Tutoring is available in-person and online for all areas
    • We have appointments and drop-ins for most services
  • Let students know that they can get help for their other courses and for learning and study strategies like time management and study skills
