- Will my professor receive any notice that I visited Tutoring Services for writing
In a typical tutoring session (50 minutes long), we begin by asking you to fill out a form that requests information regarding your assignment, the class, and whether you want your professor to know you are attending tutoring sessions.
Tutoring Services does not automatically send word to your professor, but if you would like, your instructor can be notified about your visit. We will send a conference summary which describes what you and your tutor worked on during your session. The summary does not evaluate you, your instructor or your assignment in any way. It simply summarizes the areas discussed in the conference. Many students and professors appreciate this service because it facilitates more communication between them, and it keeps the professor informed of the work that the student is doing to improve his or her skills.
