If you feel that you have tried everything and are still struggling to understand the core concepts or complete a particular academic task (essay writing), then individual tutoring may be the next step.
Tutoring is an act which facilitates learning. eg. How to read / write / study / manage time / organize / etc. better, more efficiently, and effectively.
It involves working with an individual who:
- has particular knowledge in an academic area and/or has knowledge to develop academic skills; and
- will challenge you to think or do differently.
He or she will ask guiding questions to ensure that you have a good grasp of necessary skills and content.
Tutoring is not:
- an assurance that you will receive a good grade; or
- a service that will complete your work for you.
You should be familiar with York's rules on Academic Integrity and Honesty.
