How much does it cost to get a tutor?

Nothing, tutoring is free to all Tulane University undergraduate students. 


How qualified are the tutors?

All tutors are recommended by university professors. Tutors are graduate and undergraduate students who have excelled in academics with a minimum 3.25 grade point average.  All tutors must have passed the course to be tutored with a minimum grade of A-. Tutors are required to pass a qualifying exam and attend training sessions throughout the semester.


How much can a tutor help me?

The Center is not a homework or proofreading service. Tutors may demonstrate the theory, provide a detailed explanation, or solve a similar type of homework problem, but not solve the homework problem itself.  Examples may be devised or obtained from a textbook.  Tutors are not allowed to work with students on take-home tests.  If a student arrives at the Center with a test and claims the instructor granted permission for assistance with the test, tutors should request to speak with the instructor to confirm the permission, or direct the student to the Coordinator or Supervisor. Tutors teach skills to enable the students to learn on their own.


Can I study at the Tutoring Center?

Yes.
