Students without an appointment will be received on a first-come/first-serve basis during office hours. Around exam periods, there may be some wait time, depending on demand. It is advisable to schedule an appointment.
The tutor's role is primarily a homework helper. He/she will go over problems and try to pinpoint problem areas in students' work. Tutors are not here to teach material that you missed because you were not in class. In order to get the most out of a tutoring session, it’s in your interest to try to do problems before seeing the tutor and indicate exactly where you are having difficulty.
Students must bring all course material to the session—textbook, calculator, notes, etc.
