Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct

When working with a tutor:

  • Pay careful attention to everything the tutor is trying to tell you.
  • Remember we are here to help you acquire skills, and we cannot be effective if we do too many things for you.
  • Keep in mind that tutoring is not about watching someone else do your homework.
  • Expect the tutor to tell you just enough that you can figure things out for yourself, because that is the best way to really learn.

When not working with a tutor:

  • Try to keep your focus on understanding the course that brought you in for help.
  • Try to listen to what the tutors nearby are telling other students, since it might help you as well.
  • Read through your class notes, read your book, think about what you were told in class, and try to work through the homework yourself.
  • Try to work with other students on anything you were both having trouble with. This group learning approach can be incredibly helpful.
  • Be considerate of other students and the staff while you are visiting the LRC.
