One-on-one tutoring sessions give students the chance to clarify content and practice skills in collaboration with a tutor. Sessions may vary in length depending on the needs of the student and the demands on the tutor. Every tutoring session should increase the student’s confidence and independence so that the student can improve their academic performance.

**Math Tutoring policy**

One of the Learning Center’s goals is to increase the academic independence of Central Penn College students. In keeping with that goal, the Learning Center requires that tutors collaborate with students to determine which mathematical concepts and processes they need to review in order for students to practice on their own. Students may bring specific homework questions so that the tutor can help them review and practice the pertinent material, but tutors will not complete homework questions together with the students.

Students preparing for a math tutoring session should:

- Review the materials provided by their professors (class lectures, video lectures, PowerPoints, textbook examples, etc.)*
- Begin the practice problems (homework) assigned by their professors.
- Identify specific problems and/or general concepts that they need help to complete or understand.
- Bring all of the above material to their tutoring session.

*Please note that tutors can help students to better utilize these resources

Attached you will find example homework questions from Megan Kaiser's Basic Algebra class at Central Penn College. Please review the questions, deliberately select those you might struggle with, and practice those problems using both the homework question here and similar questions in the textbook. It's very likely that students will struggle with the same concepts you do!
