  2. Q: How often should I come for tutoring?

    1. It is really up to you.  If you only have a quick question or two, come in when those questions arise.  However, for students who recognize that a particular course will be an ongoing challenge, the most successful approach is to start tutoring early in the semester and come on a regular basis.  For many students, that means coming a couple hours a week for the entire semester.

  3. Q: How do I schedule a tutoring appointment?

    1. Starting the Fall 2010 semester, math tutoring is available without an appointment (i.e. drop-in tutoring) during posted hours. If you are in need of tutoring in a subject other than math, stop by 211 Saucon and fill out a tutor request form.

  4. Q: Do I need an appointment to see a math tutor?

    1. No.  Starting Fall 2010, math tutoring is available on a drop-in basis.  Appointments are not needed during drop-in hours.  Please check the Learning Center for the hours of availability for math tutoring.

  6. Q: Where will my tutoring session be held?

    1. Most of the math tutoring takes place in the Learning Center (211 Saucon).  Group review sessions may be scheduled in a classroom.  When you schedule a session with a tutor who works "by appointment," it will be between you and the tutor to arrange a time and place to meet.  All tutoring must take place on campus.
