Syllabus Statement

Faculty, please feel free to use the following statement on your syllabi to inform your students about the Tutoring Center:

Tutoring services are offered free-of-charge to all Tusculum students.  The Tutoring Center is located on the 3rd floor of the Thomas J. Garland Library in rooms 317 and 318.  To schedule a tutoring session please stop by the Tutoring Center between 8am-5pm or contact the Leeann Smith at lsmith@tusculum.edu or (423) 798-1635 Ext 5625.  You can also schedule a session online by going to the “Schedule a Tutor” tab at http://web.tusculum.edu/tutoring.

Walk-in sessions are available for most subjects during our evening tutoring.  Evening tutoring takes place Monday-Thursday from 7pm-9pm on the second floor of the Thomas J. Garland Library (behind the circulation desk).  Some walk-in sessions are also available in the morning and afternoon; please consult the current calendar for subjects and times. Remember to bring your student ID to all tutoring sessions.

How to get the most out of a tutoring session:

  1. Start right away. Those who start tutoring at the beginning of the class typically do better than those who wait.
  2. Come prepared. Please bring your class notes and your textbook.  Look over the readings and try the problems. If you can, bring some specific questions to ask your tutor.  The more you prepare, the more you will get out of the session.
  3. Be respectful. Tutors and tutees are expected to maintain a professional relationship with one another.
