BEFORE REQUESTING A TUTOR

•  You should meet with your professor and take advantage of the resources offered by your class, such as PLI sessions or drill sessions.  There is no substitute for attending class regularly and talking directly with your professor if you need help!

•  If you are having trouble taking notes and preparing for exams, you should consult with a Peer Mentor rather than a tutor.  There should be a Peer Mentor in every dorm.
Peer Mentors have their own website: www.brynmawr.edu/pms/

• You should also feel free to meet with your Dean, the Academic Support and Learning Resources Specialist or Counseling Services particularly if other factors are impinging on your academic progress.

 

EXPECTATIONS

•  Tutors will help you to identify certain challenges you may have and will help you approach the material more effectively. However, they can not help you complete assignments.

•  Please come prepared with questions and ideas you would like to discuss.

•  Please come to the tutoring session on time.  If you are over 15 minutes late to your tutoring appointment, your tutor will consider the session cancelled.

•  If you need to cancel a tutoring session, you should tell your tutor no less than 2 hours in advance.  If continuous cancellations or no shows occur, your tutor may decide to discontinue tutoring with you and you will be asked to meet with the Tutor Supervisor.

 


HOW TO REQUEST A TUTOR

*** If you would like to request a writing tutor, please visit the Writing Center***

•  Before requesting a tutor, please consult with your professor and class resources.  Peer tutoring is most helpful to those students who have already utilized course resources.

•  Fill out a Tutor Request Form online.  A new request form must be completed each semester. 

•  You will hear from a tutor within a week of the request via email according to the contact information listed on your Tutor Request form. 

•  If there are no tutors available for the subject you request, the Head Tutor will contact you to let you know. In such cases, you should feel free to contact your professor about your need for extra help. You may also wish to talk with your Dean.

•  If you would like to request a different tutor, please contact the Head Tutor.

*** If you would like to provide feedback to the program, please complete a Tutee Survey***
