3  Don’t Talk Down to a Student  Don’t Lecture  Don’t add to Their Anxiety  Don’t Rush a Student  Don’t Do a Student’s Work for Them  Don’t be afraid to say I don’t know, or I don’t remember that part  Don’t be afraid to refer the Student to the Director or the Professor for additional help.

4  Teachers need to be sure they are evaluating a student's own work; therefore, never write any part of a student's paper. Instead of writing sections of students' papers for them, use guiding questions and comments to help them recognize their difficulties and come up with their own solutions.  Never comment negatively to students about a teacher's teaching methods, assignments, personality, or grading policies.  Never suggest a grade for a paper.  Never criticize the grade a teacher has given a paper.  Honor the confidentiality of the tutoring relationship.

9  Ask the Student what they are struggling with.  Repeat back and ask questions.  Make sure the student has the background information necessary to comprehend the task.  If there are more than one task separate them out.  IF it is a complex concept, breaking it into parts will be helpful to the student

10  Important to show the student how to solve the problem and not solve it for them  Teach the tutee how to learn the content  Ask questions that foster critical thinking and problem solving  IF the student can be prompted to come to the solution themselves the session will be more productive.

12  Remember that the course content may have been different when you took the course  Therefore Course Material is the basis for the Task  Be available to explain the task in many different ways

13  These are the most important steps  The repetition back helps solidifies a students understanding.  Furthermore, the student should be able to explain how they came to the greater understanding of the problem  This last step will be helpful not only to the Tutee, but also to you becoming a better tutor.

14  Let the student know what they should do to solidify their understanding  This is not a time to give homework, just tips.  Ask if they would like to make a follow up appointment for review or test prep.  Say Goodbye and let them know they contact either yourself or the Director should they require additional services  Log the student out of Tutortrac.
