6. Do I need to make an appointment for tutoring? Are walk-ins welcome?

It is preferred that students make appointments ahead of time. Some subjects (e.g., math and IST courses) require appointments due to the high demand for tutoring. Walk-ins are welcome, but there is no guarantee that a tutor will be available at that moment.

7. What do I need to bring with me for tutoring?

Students need to bring their course syllabus, course material, current assignments, and graded assignments/tests. This material is needed so that the tutor and student may pinpoint problem areas and work through them effectively.
