  • Attend class/labs regularly
  • Attempt assignments prior to a tutoring session
  • Bring textbook, notes, & syllabus to tutoring session
  • Plan ahead of deadlines
  • Be proactive: come to the TC as soon as you experience difficulty; don't wait until the end of the semester.

Notes: UMD Tutors are provided as a complement to primary course instruction. Their role is to assist students in learning and understanding the material; it is not their role to help students get their homework done, nor to serve as an answer checking service.

Special Usage Tips:
  • Early morning (8:00 AM) or late afternoon (6:00-9:00 PM) hours are less crowded (more individual help).
  • Some tutors have notation on their name tags indicating qualifications in specific courses.
  • Come in at the beginning of an hour for the most consistent help (tutors generally rotate on an hourly basis).
