Meet with a tutor in person for a 50 minute tutoring session. Make an appointment above or go to razortrack.uark.edu to make your appointment. You will receive an e-mail confirmation of your appointment.
Bring your textbook, problem, theory or questions you have to your tutoring session. Your tutor will help you work through specific types of problems or help you better understand a theory or other course content.
Meet with a tutor on-line. Make an on-line appointment using razortrack.uark.edu. You will receive an e-mail confirmation of your appointment. Before your appointment starts, set-up your computer, check your internet connection, get your microphone and headphones and get ready to start. Have your questions ready for the tutor. Log back in to razortrack.uark.edu. A link to the online session will appear ten minute before the scheduled time. Click on the online link and meet your tutor. Your tutor will help you work through specific types of problems or help you better understand a theory or other course content.
CHAT Tutoring for quick questions and help is offered online when tutors are available. CHAT tutoring is generally shorter in nature and will not exceed 20 minutes. If you need more time or the tutor needs to be able to illustrate a problem or formula, your tutor can transfer you to a full-fledged Online Tutoring session if his/she has the time open. No appointment is necessary, as it is first come, first serve.
Types of Appointments and Which to Pick
Three types of tutoring sessions are available: 1:1 (one-on-one), 1:2 (one-on-two), or 1:3 (one-on-three).
Not sure which type of session you should schedule? Follow these guidelines to select the best type of session for your needs:
Make a 1:1 (one-on-one) appointment:
- If you are having significant problems with the basic concepts and content of the course
- If you are making an online tutoring appointment
(You will probably need to work with the tutor for the full 50 minutes.)
Make a 1:2 (one-on-two) appointment:
If you have a general understanding of the basic concepts and content of the course, but …
- You are having difficulty with a specific problem or new concept
- You need help in understanding how the concept/problem fits with what you already know
(You will probably want to stay with the tutor for the majority of the 50 minutes.)
Make a 1:3 (one-on-three) appointment:
If you have a good understanding of the basic concepts and content of the course, but you are having trouble with a specific problem or concept.
(You may need only a few minutes of the tutor’s time OR you may want to study or do
homework the full 50 minutes and seek the tutor’s help only when you need it and you
won’t be bothered by the tutor helping other students while you are doing your own
Length of a Tutoring Session
CLASS+ Tutoring is scheduled in 50 minute appointment blocks. You can also walk-in without an appointment, and if an opening is available, a tutor will be glad to help you.
During the summer, tutoring sessions are 40 minute appointments.
