Rights and Responsibilities

Confidentiality and Respect 
The tutee has the right to confidentiality. Both the tutor and the tutee have the right to mutual respect. Such respect includes, but is not limited to, appointment keeping and punctuality.

Intention to Learn from Instructor 
The tutee is responsible for attending ALL classes and making an effort to learn from the instructor.  Tutoring is to supplement instruction ONLY. Meet with the instructor during office hours to establish rapport and obtain clarification of assignments. Should you need to miss a class please retrieve notes from a fellow classmate and view a video, if available.

Preparation 
The tutee is responsible for coming to tutoring sessions prepared. This implies reviewing notes and attempting all homework assignments prior to the tutoring session.

Communication 
The tutee has the responsibility of contacting the tutor or TLC if he/she is unable to attend a scheduled tutoring session. Tutoring services will not be extended to tutees who fail to show for appointments more than three times. The tutee has the responsibility of contacting the director or secretary of the TLC, should a problem arise in the tutoring setting that cannot be resolved between the tutor and tutee.

Academic Honesty 
The tutee has the responsibility to adhere to the academic honesty code of BGSU as outlined in the student handbook. This implies that you should be honest with your tutor as to graded assignments which the instructor intended for you to complete independently. The tutor must also abide by the academic honesty code in the application of services.
