How to Prepare for a Successful Tutoring Experience
- Seek assistance early and often. Do not wait until the day your assignment is due or an hour before class starts to meet with a tutor. Allow yourself enough time to attend several tutoring sessions if necessary.
- Come with something written. Even brainstorming or free-writing about your assignment is a great start.
- Arrive prepared. Bring assignment guidelines, class notes, the course syllabus, textbooks, research, etc.
- Ask specific questions. Your tutor will want to have a conversation with you about your writing, and a conversation requires input from both sides. Let your tutor know what concerns you have about your writing and ask lots of questions!
- Sign in to the Writing Center’s Log-in computer. Doing so helps us better serve students in the future!
- Keep in mind that all writers need feedback. Writing is a collaborative process. Even the best and most successful writers have help revising and editing their work.
