What to Expect from a Tutor (and some GREAT online tutor resources!)

The Ozarka College Student Success Center provides FREE tutoring on all 4 campuses.  

ALL students can benefit from tutoring. Tutoring is NOT for dummies, but for any student who has hit a trouble spot in a course that someone who has "been there and done that" can help them overcome.  

If you hit a road block in one of your classes, be sure to ask for help.  And when you do, it will help you to know what to expect from working with a tutor.  This document can help you understand what tutors can do for you.  Then see page 2 for links to some GREAT online tutoring resources!
