The Cockrell School of Engineering provides various opportunities for students to receive academic support via personalized tutoring and academic community centers. The school offers tutoring by department, drop-in tutoring via Jester Study Tables and scheduled appointments through Engineering Student Services. Learn more about the unique opportunities below.
How to use tutoring
Tutoring does not substitute for your lecture. You are expected to attend and participate in each of your classes. In addition, you should speak with your instructor and teaching assistant (TA) regularly. Don’t be intimidated, we’re all here to help! Tutoring provides an extra opportunity to ask questions about key concepts and work through problems.
When to use tutoring
Don’t wait until the last minute. Students who utilize tutoring are proactive and take the initiative. If you have a quick question about homework, you should take advantage of our drop-in Jester Study Tables or our engineering department drop-in services. If you need more practice on key concepts, schedule a tutoring appointment.
Expectations for tutoring
A tutor will NOT complete your homework for you, rather you and your tutor will discuss the problems in order for you to be better prepared for your next assignment, quiz, exam, etc.
What to bring to tutoring
You MUST bring your textbook, class notes, and practice problems. It’s important to be prepared to get the most out of your tutoring session.
