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?

And the student is allowed to see the instructor during office hours I would guess. So how is tutoring any different than office hours. 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.
