For drop in tutoring, sit at a table, get all your materials ready, and start to study or complete homework. The table signs allow you to notify tutors when you are ready for assistance. When you have a question, flip the sign to indicate the subject area, and an available tutor will come over as soon as they can.
All students must check in at the front desk to use any of the resources in the space (computers, tutoring, etc.).
Academic integrity is a critical value in the SLC and the college. Be prepared to show your tutor the source of your questions. Tutors do not help with ungraded quizzes, tests, or take-home exams unless the instructor has explicitly noted on the document that tutoring is permitted.
When it is busy, there may be a wait. If you are waiting longer than 20 minutes, please let the front desk know.
Borrowed Student Learning Center resources must remain in the center.
If you bring food into the Student Learning Center, please limit it to small snacks that don’t create strong smells or messes.
Please keep valuables with you.
Please provide evaluation in the remarks box when you check out. Your experience and feedback is important to us.
Tips for Tutoring and Testing
To best support your own learning, think of tutoring as a partnership that involves you engaging in problem-solving along with the tutor. Tutors will not simply provide answers to problems or assignments.
When you have missed class and instruction in a course concept, be sure to talk to your instructor during office hours or at least via email. Tutors do not replace your instructor, teach new material, or make up for classes that you missed.
