HOW TUTORING WORKS

  • ALL CSUSM students may get tutored (even if you are not taking a class here).
  • Tutors have set schedules.
  • Tutoring is by appointment OR drop in, but we recommend appointments.
  • Appointments are 45 minutes long.
  • You can book 1 week in advance.
  • You can book 3 appointments per week.
  • You can book 2 appointments per day - but not back-to-back!
  • You will lose your appointment slot if more than 10 min late.
  • You will be blocked if you are a no-show, until you talk to LLC Staff.

HOW A SESSION WORKS

  • Do as much on your own as you can.
  • Come with SPECIFIC QUESTIONS.
  • Tutoring is different than teaching: You will go over work together.
  • Tutors help with homework, test review, grammar, concepts, ideas & clarity.
  • Tutors will not proofread, edit, translate, nor do your work for you.
  • Try your best, be patient - and we will do our best to help you succeed!
