Tips for a successful residential tutoring session:
  • Do not wait until the week of your exam to visit the Center - we cannot stress this enough!
  • Prepare for your tutoring session. Read your textbook, review notes, attempt the homework problems, and don't forget to bring your notes and book to the session!
  • Come with a specific question or goal for the tutoring session. What do you want to accomplish? Be sure to communicate your goal to your tutor.
  • Not working for you? Try a different time or a different tutor... If it's still not working, contact our Center director, Kara Uhrich, at kag914@lehigh.edu, to discuss other options for tutoring in this class!
