What can you expect from a CAS online tutoring session?

  • Tutors will spend up to 30 minutes reviewing and providing feedback to your question or paper.  Please keep this time limit in mind when choosing areas for the tutor to focus on in papers and lab reports.
  • Tutors do not proofread/edit your paper or lab report or provide answers to a question.  Instead, tutors highlight the first instance of an area of concern and suggest improvements and/or provide examples for you to follow.
  • It is the student’s responsibility to know the details of a particular instructor’s expectations.  At times the tutor may refer you back to your instructor to get additional feedback for certain elements of a paper, lab report or question.
  • While we do our best to find alternative explanations in the online setting, we know our best service is when we have the opportunity to work face to face with students in the CAS.  Please give yourself extra time when using CAS online services.
