What does this tutoring program do?

Tutoring for specific courses is designed to help students who have questions about their course work that is specific to the content of the course and that is not related to math or writing issues.

How can tutoring for specific courses help me?

Tutoring for specific courses offers students the opportunity to discuss concepts presented in lectures or reading materials, learn problem-solving and critical thinking strategies, improve study skills, and develop learning strategies.

Who are the tutors?

ASC tutors for specific courses are Brockport undergraduate or graduate students who are selected based upon recommendations by teaching faculty, a track record of academic excellence, content-specific knowledge, and a willingness to help others. Upon being hired, tutors participate in a training seminar grounded in learning theory and well-established best practices for learning centers. Throughout the semester, tutors are closely supervised and provided with guidance on how to continually improve their effectiveness as tutors. STAR-NY tutors are professional and paraprofessional tutors, CRLA certified peer tutors, adjunct faculty, and graduate students.


Appointment Attendance Policy

When you make an appointment with a tutor, you have made a firm commitment to your academic development as well as to the tutor. The tutor schedules his/her day around the appointment and also makes the commitment to attend and to be punctual. Everyone’s time is valuable, so we expect that you will honor your appointments. Listed below are the attendance offenses and their penalties.

  • Skipped appointment - 2 strikes
  • More than 15 minutes late without notifying tutor or ASC staff. (Tutor is not required to wait beyond 15 minutes.) - 2 strikes
  • Cancelling appointment less than an hour before the appointment - 2 strikes
  • Cancelling less than 12 hours before the appointment - 1 strike
  • No Penalty for cancelling 12 or more hours prior to appointment - 0 strikes

If you accumulate 3 strikes or more in a given semester, then you will lose your privilege to receive tutoring by appointment for the remainder of the semester. To cancel an appointment, you may call us at (585) 395-2293 (leave a message if no one answers). If you made the appointment through our website, then you may use the link provided from Genbook to cancel.

We encourage you to plan your time carefully and respect other's time as well. If you feel as though you need help with time management, then you may wish to attend one of our time management workshops or view our study skills DVD on time management.
