Tutoring Session Instructions

The SDC is open to any student wanting to improve a presentation for class. Students should come to the SDC with their presentation fully prepared and ready to present, a description of the course assignment, and a willingness to accept constructive criticism to improve the presentation.

The SDC tutor will listen to your presentation and record it, with your permission. After the presentation the tutor will give oral feedback on the presentation, which may include watching the video to show where improvement is needed and where the speech is strong. At the conclusion of the session the tutor will give the student an evaluation sheet to return to the professor as proof of attending the SDC for assistance.

A student may attend the SDC as many times as necessary to work on the presentation. Note that the job of the SDC tutor is to help polish a presentation, not to write the presentation, so students must come to the SDC with the presentation completed.
