Finding Help with Math and Writing

Best Experience from the TLC

What You Will Receive From Student Tutoring Services:

  • You will receive one-on-one weekly tutoring sessions.
  • During your session, your tutor will act as a guide to assist you in finding and correcting your own mistakes.  Tutors WILL NOT do homework or correct papers for you. Come to tutoring sessions prepared to work.
  • Your tutor will communicate on weekly or bi-weekly basis with your instructor to monitor your academic progress and adjust tutoring approached and practices to best suit your needs.

Your Responsibilities

  • Attend classes.
  • Once your tutoring time is scheduled, you are STRONGLY DISCOURAGED from changing the time and day of your session.  Therefore, it is important that you choose your tutoring times very wisely and consider it a set time commitment.
  • Be on time for your scheduled tutoring sessions.
  • Attend sessions regularly.  Three absences will result in the termination of your tutoring.  To be reinstated, you will have to meet with the Director of the Ursuline Center for Teaching and Learning and present an argument for why you should be considered for continuation of tutoring.
  • Rescheduling requests must be made by calling the Tutoring Services Coordinator, Sharon Kasinger, at 270-686-9573 at least one hour before the scheduled tutoring time.
  • If you must miss tutoring, please show respect for your tutor by contacting the Tutoring Services Coordinator or tutor.
  • Come prepared for your tutoring session.  Bring your textbook, assignments, and all other necessary materials with you to your tutoring session.  If you do not come prepared, the tutor reserves the right to cancel the session, which will then count as an absence.
