Policies

A tutor can be defined as a helper, advisor and instructor, but never as a grader. A tutor helps the student become a better scholar in the subject area, helps the client learn to catch his or her own mistakes and addresses academic difficulties on various levels. This may mean solving outstanding issues first and addressing more detailed issues in later visits and/or other assignments. Tutors employ interaction strategies and/or focus the discussion to the assignment’s level and the student’s needs.

Students need to provide the tutors with enough information and attention to let them do their jobs successfully and be willing to cooperate with the tutor and abide by the Tutoring Center policies. This includes providing the instructor’s name and class, a copy of the assignment or directions, and specific questions and concerns to be discussed. The DePaul CDM tutors are dedicated to helping students understand the key concepts necessary for success in their courses. While tutors are able to help you with your homework, tutors absolutely will not write code or complete homework assignments. Both students and tutors are required to follow the guidelines of the Academic Integrity Policy of DePaul University.

Contact Us

If you have any questions, comments or complaints about a tutor or the CDM tutoring program, please email Dr. Terry Steinbach, Director of Student Learning.​​​​​​​
