Tutoring Fiction vs. Fact

Fiction Fact
Tutorial Center tutors give undivided one-on-one assistance. Our walk-in center serves as many students as possible. High demand subjects have 3-5 Tutors for every 15 students. Wait-times may occur.
Tutors provide answers to assignments. Our tutors are CRLA trained to provide guidance on how to achieve the correct answer, which will help you succeed when taking the test.
Tutoring can replace class time. Tutors support students in clearing up minor problems and cannot replace class time or effective study habits.
Tutors know everything. Tutors are just like you. They take courses taught by a variety of professors and may not be familiar with every concept or homework assignment in each course.
Tutors pick and choose which students they help. Tutors respond to flags raised in their assigned subject areas in request order.
Private tutors are employed by the CAS. The CAS provides private tutor names through a Tutor Matching Service as a courtesy, but does not employ private tutors and is not responsible for their service quality.
Students who have a poor experience should quit attending the tutorial center. Feedback matters! Complete a Tutor Rate Card so CAS can quickly address issues.
