Question: How do I meet with a tutor or coach?

Question: What’s the difference between coaching and tutoring?

Answer: (Tutoring): During our one-on-one tutoring sessions, highly trained tutors help you with your writing skills, art history, or math skills by asking you questions about your work and helping you through the problems you face, not by telling you what to write or what the answer is. 

(Coaching): A success coach will help you discover strategies to take control of your academic, personal, and professional success. Your coach will support, encourage, and guide you to reach the goals you set for yourself, while you are being pushed and held accountable along the way.
