Guidelines For A Great Tutoring Session

  • Please sign-in. This generates funding to help us keep helping you!
  • Bring your resources: textbooks, notes, calculators, pencils, prompts, study guides, etc.
  • Bring your assignment: hard copies of papers or prompts. Tutors can help you best when they too are clear on the question or assignment.
  • Prepare specific questions. The more prepared you are, the more you will get out of your session.
  • Allow sufficient time. Tutors must circulate to ensure all students receive assistance, so they will help a student with one question and then move to the next student. During peak times allow plenty of time to get the amount of assistance needed.
  • Respect and uphold the Cuesta College Academic Honesty Policy.
    How Academic Honesty Applies to Drop-In Tutoring:
      • Tutors will help you with homework and will not complete it for you.
        Tutors will explain how to address or find information and resources to for a particular problem and will not complete take-home exam and quiz questions.
      • Tutors will answer specific questions as well as ask questions to model critical thinking to guide you and will not proofread/edit/correct a paper. Be prepared to make notes and corrections.
  • Respect and uphold the Cuesta College Student Code of Conduct and contribute to a warm and welcoming academic environment for all students and staff.
