Tutoring Fiction vs. 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.|
