The purpose of tutoring is to provide a safe learning environment through a collaborative learning experience for students desiring assistance with content in a specific course. Tutors encourage and engage students in becomming engaged and successful learners by developing learning strategies related to the course. Tutoring is a deliberate process that emphasises the student's responsibility for his or her own learning process while the tutor functions as a facilitator or guide. Daily paperwork is required to ensure program accountability in tracking services.
