UNDERSTANDING TUTORING CENTER SERVICES

• Tutors will help you understand the concepts of your homework, but they will NOT do your homework for you.  
• Tutors help students develop independent learning strategies.
• Tutors do not teach class material. If you have missed a class, contact your instructor. 
• Tutors cannot assist with quizzes and tests in any form, including take-home quizzes and tests.
