Tutoring Rules
  • Learners are required to meet with their tutors at least twice a week. 
  • Learners may be assigned to a small group tutoring session for up to four students. 
  • Learners are required to contact their tutors if they cannot make their scheduled session at least 12 hours in advance. If a tutoring session must be rescheduled, the learner or tutor must contact the other via exchanged contact information.
  • Learners are allowed to miss two sessions. At the third missed session, the learner will be required to meet with the Tutor Coordinator to determine if tutoring for that class will continue. 
  • Learners are required to sign in and out at each session for record keeping purposes. 
  • Learners are required to attend all classes! Tutoring is not a substitute for attending class lectures, labs or review sessions. 
  • Learners are required to check their DWU email account daily and their DWU mailboxes regularly to receive updates from their tutor and the Tutor Coordinator. 
  • Learners are required to be prepared for every tutoring session. This includes bringing all notes, the text, handouts, and homework assigned by the tutor to each session. Tutors reserve the right to ask an unprepared student to leave the session. 
  • Tutors will not complete a learner's homework assignment for them, so attend each session with homework already attempted. This will let the tutor know which direction to take the tutoring session. 
*If a tutoring session must be rescheduled, the tutee or tutor must contact the other via exchanged contact information or contact Tutor Coordinator, Donna Dunn at 995-2904.
