You must attend your tutoring appointment each week. Call 414-297-6791 if you cannot attend. This will still count as a miss.
Note: Your appointment will be canceled ...
Once you are canceled, you must wait two weeks to re-apply. After a second cancelation, you must wait four weeks to re-apply. You will be re-scheduled only if space is available. Priority for scheduling will be given to new students.
Changing appointments is strongly discouraged. Changes are requested on the yellow "Request for Change" form, which can be picked up at the Downtown Milwaukee Campus, Room C201.
While tutoring is free for students, there are still costs, such as pay for tutors and other staff. Our experience shows that without the missed appointment policy, 48 percent of our students would not come for their appointment!
Yes. It is unfair to tutors when students do not show up. Many tutors rely on their wages in order to pay bills. Also, many of the best tutors don’t work for money but because they like helping students. If a student does not attend, they are not “paid” with personal satisfaction. They may become frustrated and quit.
Thank you for calling in. We appreciate your courtesy! However, while calling in is an obligation of the Tutoring Agreement, it does not automatically excuse your absence.
Yes. If you provide written documentation for your absence, it will not be counted as a “MISS.” Examples of written documentation include a doctor’s excuse, a court appearance, a funeral bulletin, a note from meeting your child’s teacher, etc.
Accurate attendance records are essential. The data helps us secure grant funding so that tutoring remains free to students. If you have questions about signing in or out, the staff will be happy to show you how.
While most of our students are responsible, some are not. The attendance policy is in place to keep tutoring free for semesters to come. Thank you for your understanding and support!
