TUTORING POLICIES FOR TUTEES

The goal of the University Academic Support (UAS) is to ensure that you get the most out of your tutoring experience. To help with this please review the following policies.

General

  • Tutoring is a service provided free of charge by the University to assist you in achieving your academic goals. Please show respect to the UAS staff, tutors and other personnel at all times.
  • Arrive on time and prepared with all materials, questions, and work. This helps to ensure that your questions are answered and that, as a tutee, you get the maximum benefit from a session.
  • Appointments are scheduled for half-an-hour but you may request back-to-back sessions for a total of one hour.
  • Please be respectful and courteous of the tutors time. Our goal is to ensure that all students who need access have an opportunity to use the service. 

Missed/Cancelled Appointments

  • Students are expected to make all scheduled appointments. If an appointment no longer works, or you are unable to keep an appointment please contact the Center Desk at 419-448-3324 to reschedule.
  • If you fail to show for an appointment or cancel within 2 hours of the appointment, it will count as a no-show. After two no-shows your access to tutoring may be suspended for the term.

Academic Integrity

  • Students as well as tutors are expected to practice academic integrity at all times. As stated in the University ICARE Values, we are charged to behave ethically and responsibly.
  • Tutors will not answer questions or assist with quizzes, exams, or similar graded worker unless an instructor has directly requested such help for a student. A tutor is limited to assisting with test preparation, study guide review, test-taking strategies, and tips leading up to an exam. 
  • Tutors can assist with homework assignments by working example problems, but will not work any problem that is assigned for a grade. It is the students responsibility to avoid an academic integrity violation and ensure that the tutor is aware of graded work/assignments.
  • Writing consultants/tutors assist with the review and improvement of writing. Do not ask a writing tutor to re-write or simply edit your paper. This is an academic integrity violation. The goal is to work collaboratively to improve your paper.
