Tutoring Policies and Student Expectations

All Franklin students are expected to adhere to the following tutoring policies as a courtesy to other students and our tutors:

Check in
For face-to-face appointments, be sure to sign in at the computer located at the front desk.  In addition, let the SLC staff know you are there for tutoring.

Prepare for the appointment
Students are expected to be prepared for tutoring.  Make sure that you are prepared for your tutoring appointment by attending class regularly, reading the assigned materials, attempting assigned coursework, and preparing questions for the tutor.

Bring course materials
Students are expected to bring their own materials to the tutoring appointment, including textbooks, writing utensils and calculators.

Expect concept-based tutoring
While the tutors will assist with any questions regarding the covered concepts, they will not assist you with graded assignments.

Schedule number of sessions
You may schedule up to two tutoring appointments per week per subject (e.g., two math, two writing, etc.). Please note that you may schedule only one appointment in the same subject each day and that the online writing review also counts as an appointment.

Show up on time
It is crucial that you show up on time for your scheduled appointment. The tutor will wait no more than 10 minutes; thereafter, your appointment will lapse and you will be considered a no-show.

Cancel on time
In the event you cannot attend your scheduled tutoring session, please contact the SLC to cancel no later than two hours before your scheduled appointment. Any cancellation occurring thereafter will be documented as a no-show. To cancel, contact the SLC at 614.947.6800, toll free at 1.866.341.6206 or via email at slc@franklin.edu.

No-show policy
Two no-shows, regardless of the subject, will result in your termination from scheduling any further tutoring appointments for the remainder of the term.

Instructor notification
The SLC prepares weekly reports to the instructors, notifying them of your tutoring services usage.

Students are expected to follow all of these tutoring guidelines. Not doing so may result in the forfeiture of further SLC assistance.

What is Tutoring?

Tutoring is:

  • Far more than just homework help – Instead, our tutoring approach is designed to help reinforce concepts from the course.
  • Foundational level support – our tutoring program focuses on core, introductory Franklin classes.
  • Coaching, encouraging, mentoring.
  • Free to currently enrolled students.

Tutoring is not:

  • A homework service – our tutors will not do your homework for you. Instead they will help you understand the concepts so you can improve your level of understanding.
  • A substitute for going to class – you get the most out of tutoring by attending all classes and being prepared to ask tutors specific questions
  • Only for those who are chronically "lost" in a course – the best students know their limitations and use tutors to help them along the way.
