    Some things to consider:

    • Tutors assist students on a first-come/first-helped basis  
    • During peak periods, students may need to wait for assistance
    • To assist the maximum number of students, tutors may need to limit the length of time students spend in the session
    • Tutors may assist multiple students at one time. If students have similar questions or are reviewing similar course concepts, the tutor may have students work in groups to review material and help each other.
