One I've heard more than once:
The tutors don't understand the material and are always giving students incorrect information.

Subject: Debunking Myths about Tutoring/Tutors/Learning Centes
It is hard to believe that the end the fall semester is almost here. Please help me compile "myths" you have heard faculty state about how tutoring/tutors/learning centers may undermine traditional classroom dynamics, such as:
-Students may go to tutoring instead of going to class;
-Students ask their tutors questions, instead of going to faculty office hours OR asking questions in class;
-Students have tutors do their homework for them.
Send your myth(s) to Michelle Wolf at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.
Thank you and happy holidays,
