Online registration for group/individual tutoring for Spring 2013 begins Saturday, February 9th.
You must register with a tutor at least two days in advance and if you need to cancel, you must cancel at least 24 hours in advance by calling 212-217-4080 or sending an email to www.AcademicSkillsCenter@fitnyc.edu. You are only allowed one absence for the semester.
Students who are currently registered in credit-bearing or remedial courses at FIT may receive up to seven hours of individual tutoring each fall and spring semester. You may also attend our walk-in tutoring sessions as often as you like. In order to receive tutoring for a particular class, you must be currently taking that class. You may schedule an appointment for up to two weeks in a row at one time. You may use the seven hours in the following ways:
a. seven 1 hour sessions, once a week or,
b. 14, 1/2 hour sessions (maximum of two per week) or,
c. a combination of 1 hour and 1/2 hour sessions throughout the semester
In order to register for a tutor, you must first read the information listed below.
1. If you want to sign up for a Writing Tutor, simply go to the website listed below, register, and choose the option "Writing Studio" on the drop down menu to schedule an appointment with a tutor. For all other classes, choose the option "Academic Skills Tutoring Center."
2. Please read the following "Tutoring Contract" so that you understand the purpose and rules
of the tutoring center.
- I understand that I am only allowed one absence per semester.
- I understand that I must cancel my appointment 24 hours in advance. If not, it will be considered an absence.
- I understand that I should contact the tutoring center if I am going to be late or absent at 212-217-4080.
- I will supply my tutor with information about my course and bring the necessary notes, books, and equipment.
- I understand that the purpose of tutoring is to help with the clarification of material that the instructor has presented
in class or to get a better understanding of required reading and homework.
- I understand that I cannot expect the tutor to have the same expertise as my instructor.
- I understand that under no circumstances will a tutor do my work for me and can not help with take home exams.
- I understand that a tutor's job is to help me to become a more self-sufficient, independent learner by
providing access to the skills necessary to eventually succeed on my own.
3. Again, when you go to the website listed below to register, you must choose the option for "Academic Skills Tutoring Center" for courses other than writing.
