Frequently Asked Questions

 

How long is a tutoring session?
Each session is 45-50 minutes.

How do I prepare for my appointment?
Plan to join the Zoom meeting about five minutes early, in case you have technical difficulties. Have all of your materials on hand before your appointment begins. Most importantly, think about a goal for your session -- a concern or concerns that you can make progress on in 45-50 minutes with your tutor; attempt the work first so you know what you need help with.

I’m not familiar with Navigate, Zoom, or Brainfuse. What should I do?
Reynolds Technology Support has resources to introduce you to Navigate and Zoom. You can learn more about Brainfuse here. Additionally, Tutoring Services staff are happy to talk to you about your concerns; contact us by phone, email, or online form (see table Contacting Tutoring Services above).

Brainfuse Online Tutoring

In addition to free peer tutoring services offered at Reynolds, currently enrolled students also have access to Brainfuse, an online tutoring service that covers all major subjects. Learn more about Brainfuse.
