*Drop-in sessions are first come, first served.
*There will be a waiting room. The tutor will admit you if no one else is being tutored. If a session is in progress, you may have to wait a few minutes.
*The tutor will work with a student for 15 minutes at a time if a student is waiting.
*Please be respectful and patient. Online tutoring offers more flexibility than in-person sessions but there are challenges. It is essential that students show respect and follow the rules. They will receive a warning if they do not and may be removed if problems persist.
Expectations: Have your textbook (electronic or hard copy) with you and complete your homework before entering a session in order to be prepared to ask questions. Tutoring reinforces instruction even in online learning, it does not replace your class. Please refer to the Guidelines for Working with a Tutor on the Spanish Lower Division Policies page.
