Preparing for a Tutoring Session

You will have a better experience when you get help at Braddock if you:

  • Come prepared. Attend all class sessions and take notes, review your notes and assigned readings, and earnestly attempt or do your homework in advance.
  • Plan ahead before midterms/finals or homework is due. Seeking help in the last minute is not advisable.
  • Prepare questions and/or goals you want to achieve, so you can efficiently get assistance.
  • Bring your course syllabus, textbook, handouts, notes, stationery, and other necessary materials.
  • Use your course materials to try to solve problems on your own, or work with a peer(s), before asking a tutor for assistance.
  • Have patience, a positive attitude, and willingness to put in effort to learn a subject and do well in a course.

When getting help at Braddock:

  • Students less prepared may be asked to work on their own outside the tutoring suite, then return to get efficient assistance with specific questions.
  • Students taking the same course may receive assistance together from one tutor.

Attend a Drop-in Tutoring Session

Before attending a drop-in tutoring session, make sure to attend and watch lectures, review course concepts, and work through your homework or practice problems in order to organize the questions you need to clarify with a tutor.
