What You Can Expect When You Visit For Tutoring

All tutoring at the SMLC is done "cafe-style"1. Here's how that works:

1 There are no opportunities for free private tutoring in the SMLC. For private tutoring, students should contact their professor or academic department to inquire about potential private for-hire tutors or to learn about other tutoring resources.

2 For example: students needing help with Math 155 will sit at the tables labeled "Math".

3 You should bring practice problems, homework, lab reports, etc. to work on as our tutors cannot help with take-home quizzes, tests, or projects.

4 Tutors will not work your problems for you. They will assist you in becoming an independent learner.
