a tutoring service or center is unreliable. At most schools,
anyone can be placed on a list of tutors. Yet there are
many unqualified tutors, some who mean well but haven’t

make it more difficult to learn the material in the future.
It is difficult to gauge how well someone can tutor and
what experience he or she has unless you conduct your
