Guidelines, Policies and Procedures for Students Requesting Tutoring
Our tutoring service provides direct academic support for students admitted in the Success at Southern (SAS) TRiO program. TRiO offers paired/small group tutoring for individual courses at times and locations that are set by the SAS Staff. Both the student requesting tutoring and the identified tutor are expected to take personal responsibility for following tutoring guidelines, policies and procedures. Tutoring privileges may be terminated for inappropriate behavior. Examples are disrespectful language, violation of one’s personal space, creating a hostile environment for the tutor and/or other students, aggressive body language, and any other disruptive or inappropriate behaviors or expressions.
Requests for Tutoring:
Students who want tutoring support need to submit a Tutoring Request Form. We will respond to each request within 3 days. TRiO will try to match every student with a tutor, however if a tutor is not available it's the student’s responsibility to utilize outside resources and/or speak with their TRiO Advisor regarding their situation.
Scheduling Appointments with Your Tutor:
SAS will coordinate all tutoring sessions with you and your tutor. If you decide that you no longer require a tutor (before or after you have been assigned one), please contact the Success program as soon as possible.
Locations for Tutoring:
Tutoring will be located in Success/TRiO Central, TRiO Tutor Room, or the ASP Multipurpose Room.
