How does tutoring work?

Math tutors are trained undergraduate and graduate students who will help you understand math concepts by asking questions to clarify what you know and how the concept has been taught to you. They can help you to find mistakes in your work so that you can see what you have been doing incorrectly, and they'll work other examples with you and give you suggestions on how to approach the problems that you're doing.

Math tutors will not teach the course to you (this is up to your instructor), nor will they do your homework or tests for you.

To prepare for math tutoring, you should attend your classes and read your textbook. Then try the assigned homework on your own, so you can come with specific questions to ask the tutors and be ready to show them the work that you've already done. It also helps if you bring your class notes!
