Computer Science Tutoring Policy

  • Tutors are provided to help you solve a specific programming problem, understand a problem, design a solution, and learn strategies to find solutions yourself.

  • Tutors are provided to help YOU write and debug your programs, not to personally write or debug an entire program for you step by step. You should request tutor assistance only when you are stuck and need clarification. A tutor may write code samples or portions of your program for you as an example for the rest of your program.

  • When submitting your code acknowledge any assistance received, especially if it includes code developed by a tutor or other source.

  • If the tutor's assistance is insufficient for you to make progress on your own then see your instructor.

  • Tutors are not allowed to help you for an extended period of time while others are waiting (about 5 minutes).

  • Recognize that the tutors are students, not instructors. Some topics may lie beyond the tutor's expertise. If you need more help than the tutor can provide, see your instructor.
