What to bring to your tutoring session

pile of papers and notes

The most important thing to bring is the assignment (if you have one) and any writing you have done so far on the assignment.

Here is a helpful list of things to consider bringing:

  • The assignment (class notes, handouts, syllabus, etc)
  • Your paper, or multiple drafts of your paper
  • Research materials (this sometimes helps with citation questions or quoting)
