Make a reservation online

Login to your student profile to reserve a tutoring session at any time. It’s best to plan your reservations in advance to ensure that a tutor will be available to assist you.

Plan in advance:

You cannot reserve a tutoring session for the same day.  

The deadline to reserve a tutoring session for the next day is 4 p.m.

 

Pay online

Public tutoring sessions are payable by Visa, MasterCard or American Express through the University of Regina’s online payment service. You will be automatically directed when you make a reservation.

The session fee must be paid within one hour of making the reservation or it will be cancelled.

 

Cancel your reservation

To avoid penalties, a tutoring session must be cancelled by 4 p.m. on the day prior to the appointment.

Login to your student profile to cancel a session online as well as by contacting the Student Services Centre at 306.337.3280 or by email. The same delays are applicable (by 4 p.m. the day before).

 

Avoid penalties

If you forget to cancel or neglect to show up for your tutoring session without notice, you are obligated to assume the cost of the tutoring session. There are no refunds.

Be on time for your session. If you expect to be a little late, advise the Student Services Centre by telephone or e-mail. Tutors wait a maximum of 15 minutes before cancelling the tutoring session. After this waiting period, you are obligated to pay the penalty.

 

Prepare for your session

The tutoring service is an educational service, not a correction service. Tutors are not there to correct or do your work, but to assist with your education by answering questions and steering you in the right direction. You should therefore arrive prepared for your session.  

Before a session:

  • Make an appointment with a tutor in advance
  • Allow for a number of meetings with your tutor for a long work
  • Do an initial self-correction
  • Prepare a list of questions

During the session:

  • Show up on time
  • Bring the directives and requirements for the work
  • Bring the necessary class material (workbook, textbook, etc.)
  • Set precise goals and communicate them to the tutor
  • Ask for grammatical explanations and exercises to achieve a better understanding of the subject
  • Take notes on important points raised during the session
