Frequently Asked Questions

Answer:

One of the goals of Learning Support Services is to help Edgewood College students become independent learners. It is your responsibility to seek out services, and use them accordingly. You must:

  • Attend all scheduled tutoring sessions. Tutoring is free, but you must call your peer tutor if you must cancel or if you are going to be late. If you cancel or miss three appointments, LSS will terminate your tutoring services!!
  • Be on time prepared for all tutoring sessions.
  • Regularly attend all courses for which you are receiving tutoring.

Failure to do any the above may result in the termination of services.

If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact Learning Support Services.
