What is Drop-In Tutoring?

Drop-in tutoring is a time when students can come without an appointment  and meet with a tutor waiting to help. This is a great option for students who may not have the time or want to commit to a weekly tutor, but may still have questions throughout the semester. Students with an individual tutor can also utilize drop-in hours for any additional questions they might have. Demand varies depending on the day of the week and time in the semester, so you may be the only student at a drop-in session or there may by a group of students.

Drop-in Tutee Rights and Responsibilities

All students who utilize drop-in tutoring are required to sign a form that acts as an understanding between the tutor and tutee about expectations and requirements of tutoring. 

In order to participate in drop-in tutoring, I acknowledge my responsibility to:
