4. What should I bring to my tutoring session?

Make sure that you bring the syllabus and/or assignment sheet from the class for which you need help. In addition, bring the text and the writing prompt or assignment, making sure that you've done the reading and given a good faith effort at the assignment. Finally, bring the work that you've already started with you to the tutoring session.

6. How do I make an appointment outside of walk-in hours?

7. How can I become a tutor?

Tutors are hired during the winter term to begin working the next academic year. In order to apply for a Learning Center position, you must first be nominated by a Hanover faculty member. The call for faculty nominations goes out in mid to late January. If you wish to pursue becoming a tutor, please consider talking with your professors and asking them to submit a nomination on your behalf.
