Request a Tutor by Appointment: Policies and Procedures Summer 2013
Be sure to carefully read the policies and procedures outlined below.
In adherence with the Undergraduate Tutorial Center's (UTC) philosophy, peer tutors work towards helping students become independent learners .
Eligibility for Tutoring by Appointment
Students may request individual tutoring if they are enrolled in the requested class(es) for credit (no audits) and have satisfied prerequisite courses and/or are enrolled in co-requisite courses. The UTC will deny requests if these items are not satisfied. Exceptions will be considered when a written waiver from the instructor is provided (a waiver form is available in the UTC office).
The UTC accepts tutoring by appointment applications for 100-200 level math, physics, and chemistry classes. The UTC will work to find qualified tutors; however, the tutor pool changes from semester to semester and there may be shortages of tutors in some courses. Please note that MA 242 and CH 223 tutoring is not available in the weekly assigned program. No tutoring is available for MA 103, 105, or 114.
No orientation sessions are held during the summer. Students may inquire about different assistance available in the UTC office. All students may register online for a Weekly Assigned tutor, beginning the first day of each session.
Individual Weekly-Assigned (WA) tutoring
Weekly Allotment of Hours
Students will be permitted to work with a tutor for up to three hours each week.
Attending Tutoring Sessions
Students in all tutoring sessions are expected to arrive on time, to be prepared for the session, to participate actively, and to stay for the entire prearranged session time. Otherwise, they may accrue a no-show.
Two cumulative "no-shows" in UTC tutoring by appointment programs will result in the loss of privileges to use these services for the remainder of the semester. Furthermore, conditional approval must then be received from the UTC Director to use these programs in future semesters.
ALL students are encouraged to discuss their individual needs with their tutors and consider other time commitments when scheduling tutorial sessions.
Understanding These Policies
I have read and agree to adhere to the policies and procedures outlined above and understand that failure to following UTC policies will result in the loss of all individual tutoring services this semester. [Summer Session 2 applications will be accepted beginning July 1.]
