The Role of a Tutor in Your Learning

The role of the tutor is to provide you with skills and tools that help you succeed in your learning journey. Tutors do not do your work for you. Here are examples of tasks that are not the responsibility of a tutor:

  • Completing your homework and assignments
  • Making up for missed classes/assignments/prerequisite courses
  • Completing tests (including take-home or make-up tests)
  • Line-by-line correcting, editing, proofreading or translating of your work
  • Teaching you material that is not included in your coursework
  • Covering a semester’s worth of work in the days leading up to your final exams
  • Commenting on your instructor’s feedback or grades you may have received
