Preparing for Your Session

You must study the material and begin the problems before working with a tutor. The ACE Tutoring Center is a tutoring center, not a homework center. Homework should be done elsewhere.

How Math Tutoring Works

Tutors will work and explain examples only from the text and/or class notes. They will also give study tips and answer specific questions.

Tutors will not assume responsibility for completing homework, but rather will seek to help you understand the concepts involved. Tutors will not assume responsibility for covering material when you miss a class.

Tutors are required to follow the methods taught in class. You must have your class notes so the tutors can consult them to determine the instructor's preferred approach. The methods presented in the textbook will be the second choice.

Tutoring should be used to help you:

  • Comprehend mathematical concepts
  • Understand specific problems
  • Build organizational skills and problem-solving strategies
  • Direct you to other available resources
