Making the Most of Your Tutoring Experience
Update 03/13/2020: In response to the suspension of in-person classes and nonessential university events, Tiger Tutors will be moving to an online format for the remainder of the semester. The Learning Center is dedicated to maintaining the same high level of academic support for students during this time. Starting Monday, March 16th, students will be able to access Tiger Tutors via Zoom during the regularly scheduled times. Per the email on March 5th from the Interim Vice President for Information Technology, all students now have access to Zoom at the “Pro” level. By going to the website https://umsystem.zoom.us and entering your PawPrint, you can access Zoom for your classes and your tutoring. More information on downloading and using Zoom is available here.
Once you have joined the Zoom meeting, you will be split into separate “rooms” dedicated to the specific course you want to discuss. This is much like going to the regular sessions in person and going to one corner of the room to speak with a tutor about your class/questions. Please click on the individual subject to find out how to access the Tiger Tutors session(s) you would like to attend. All meeting IDs are included on the subject pages.
The goal of Tiger Tutors is to overview the course content. It is incredibly helpful to go in knowing exactly what you need assistance with. Don’t just go to the sessions hoping to be told what you need to know. Although these sessions are not individual one-on-one sessions, the tutors are still available to answer individual questions, so knowing what your questions are before you attend is the best way to make the most out of these sessions.
Our tutors are all familiar with the material they are tutoring because they have not only taken the class they are assisting you with, they did well in it. Because of their experience and knowledge in your specific course, they are some of the best resources the University can offer.
