How Tutoring Can Benefit Students

Tutors help students build academic skills and assist them in areas they struggle in, while preparing them with improved work and study skills. The extra layer of preparation and confidence students gain through tutoring will increase their overall academic achievement.

A Tutor will:

  • Help students overcome learning obstacles.
  • Improve academic achievement.
  • Encourage independence and responsibility.
  • Treat you and your work with respect and confidentiality.
  • Model strategies to better help you understand your assignments.
  • Encourage Students to Ask Questions.
