Tutoring through the Tutorial Center is a free academic support service for Gallaudet students.
If a tutor or English coach edits or proofreads course work (and makes changes for the student), the student would not be presenting his or her own true work.

Opportunities Questions

A tutor is not a substitute for your teacher. You are expected to attend class regularly. For tutoring sessions, read your textbook and complete as much of your homework as possible. Come to the session with questions about your reading assignment or homework that you did not understand. You should bring your textbook, class notes, old test papers, class handouts, and any other supporting documents so the tutor is fully informed and can help you navigate course material and pinpiont areas to offer assistance.
