Tutoring Attendance and Expectations

Attendance

Students are expected to appear on time for all scheduled tutoring sessions. If for any reason you are not able to meet with your tutor for a session, you must notify ARCHES prior to your scheduled session. If a student knows in advance they can not attend a session, it is encouraged to reschedule that session with their tutor.

A student must give one hour notice to cancel a tutor session or it will count as a No Show.

If excessive cancellations occur the following actions may be taken:

1 session/week:

2nd Cancellation – will receive an email notification

3rd Cancellation – tutoring will be canceled for the quarter

2 sessions/week:

3rd Cancellation - will receive an email notification

4th Cancellation – tutoring will be canceled for the quarter

If a student does not show to a tutor session without any contact, or arrives 20 minutes after the hour it will also count as a No Show.

The following actions may be taken if a student No Shows:

1st No Show – will receive an email notification

2nd No Show – tutoring will be canceled for the quarter (for that course)

If you are running late for your tutoring session you must contact ARCHES immediately. If you are 10 minutes late for a session it will be documented.

If a student is excessively late the following actions may be taken:

2 late sessions – will receive an email notification

3 late sessions = 1 “no show”, refer to “no show” policy

*ARCHES reserves the right to alter or remove a student's tutoring based on attendance

Expectations

Students should come prepared with questions, problems, drafts of essays, or have something to work on in order to make the most of their session.

Students should also bring materials needed for their session: textbooks, course syllabus, and previous quizzes/tests.

It is most helpful to talk to your tutor about your academic strengths and weakness especially pertaining to the subject your receiving tutoring.

Students are expected to complete their own work. Tutors are here to assist in the learning process and NOT here to help students complete homework or complete a take home exam. The role of the tutor is to assist students with problem areas, review materials, practice applications, and help students learn to find the answers for themselves.

Students are expected to treat all tutors with respect. It is important to communicate all questions/concerns with your tutor if he/she is not meeting your needs.
