  • Get acquainted with the math tutors.  Find one or more math tutors you work well with.
  • Consult the schedule online or posted in the center to find out when a particular staff member will be working.
  • Talk and work with other students in the center who have similar questions.
  • Visit the center consistently throughout the semester.
  • Don't wait until exam weeks to come in. There will be more opportunities for individual attention during non-exam weeks.
  • Check the center web page for special review sessions for your course.
  • Make sure you have reviewed your notes and tried the problem ahead of time. 
  • Have questions ready. Be proactive in asking questions.
  • The tutoring session is about building on your understanding and is not a place to get answers.
  • Do not expect the tutors to develop a lecture over the material. They are here to clarify misunderstandings on course material and to answer questions.
