Do your homework or practice problems from the book BEFORE you meet with the
tutor. At least attempt a variety of problems so that there will be something to
discuss. Keep up on your readings and homework throughout the quarter. It’s very
easy to slip behind and find yourself scrambling and annoyed with trying to
catch up. Take good notes in class. Highlight anything that is confusing, so
it’s easy to ask about it later. Questions that begin, “Um, I think we maybe
talked about that Friday,” can be counter-productive. Don’t miss class and then
presume the tutor can re-create lectures.
