*Sessions are drop-in, first come, first served.
*There will be a waiting room. The tutor will admit you if no one else is being tutored. If a session is in progress, you may have to wait a few minutes.
*Small groups of students in the same course may be tutored at the same time.
*If there are multiple students at a session, the tutor will work with a student or students in a particular course at one time, addressing questions and rotating among all students present. The tutor will work with one student or group no more than 15 minutes at a time if students in other courses are waiting.
*Please be respectful and patient if other students are present. Online tutoring is a new environment for everyone. It is essential that students show respect and follow the rules. They will receive a warning if they do not and may be removed if problems persist.
Expectations: Have your textbook (electronic or hard copy) with you and complete your homework before entering a session in order to be prepared to ask questions. Tutoring reinforces instruction even in online learning, it does not replace your class. Please refer to the Guidelines for Working with a Tutor on the Spanish Lower Division Policies page.
