Tutoring & Success Sessions

Clarkson College offers tutoring sessions for a variety of undergraduate courses. Success sessions are also offered and focus on skills rather than course content. Sessions are led by Student Tutors and affiliates who have demonstrated exceptional aptitude in academic and interpersonal skills.

Appointments are available on campus or online and can be scheduled through the RegisterBlast Resources website: https://www.registerblast.com/clarkson-resources/Resource/list

Scheduled appointments will get first priority. Tutors will meet with walk-ins only if they have no scheduled appointments.

Expectations

  • Students must arrive on time for their scheduled appointments.
  • Students must not go over the allotted time of their appointment. If Tutors do not have any other students waiting to meet with them, they can make the decision to continue to work with students past their allotted time.
  • Students who have scheduled appointments get first priority.
  • Tutors will meet with walk-ins only if they do not have any scheduled appointments.
  • Students must arrive to their sessions prepared regardless if it is a scheduled appointment or a walk-in. Being prepared means students have reviewed their course materials and have attempted to complete their homework before coming to the appointment. Students should have identified specific areas in which they need help before coming to the appointment.
  • Tutors have the right to ask students to reschedule their appointments if they come unprepared or arrive late.
  • It is not the Tutors’ responsibility to teach course material. Tutors will not do homework for students. Tutors are there to guide and help students understand course content.
  • Students must abide by the College’s Academic Integrity Policy and Student Code of Conduct. Failure to do so will result in disciplinary action.
