Pre-Tutoring Tips

  1. Read/review the material prior to class to help you identify concepts you do not understand well.
  2. Attend all class sessions to gain answers to questions about the course material.
  3. Develop a study system that works for you. Flash cards, highlighting important information, rewriting notes, making a Know, Want to Know, Learned (KWL) chart before lectures and from textbook notes are a few study strategies.
  4. Study course materials and attempt homework assignments.
  5. Bring your list of all the unclear concepts to your tutorial session to review with the tutor.
