Our recommendation is always that you first speak to the professor teaching the course before deciding to use a tutor. The professor may be able to offer suggestions on how to best approach the material, and are often available for extra help during their office hours.
For Successful Tutoring:
Know what you want to work on. Do your assignments.
GO TO CLASS
Tutoring cannot make up for missed lectures>
Tutoring is not a lecture. It is an active way to process information in which you and your tutor participate one on one.
