I tutor my students also during office hours or whever it is convient for
the student and I. Yes that is a form of tutoring. If the student needs more
than I can provide, than I suggest a tutoring lab or centre or a private
tutor but most schools have a tutoring lab. i think it is great, however
when we as college teachers can tutor our students as we are the ones
teaching the material. what do all of you think? France

But the teacher is already getting paid to teach
the course.
And the student is allowed to see the instructor
during office hours I would guess.
So how is tutoring any different than office

In fact, one of the ways I bring students into my
tutor lab is through teaching courses.  It builds
a reputation for the tutor lab being helpful, and
the students tell students in other sections of
the course about this important resource.
