The tutorial: integral to the seminar
The tutorials for SCIO’s month long summer and online tutorial seminars are closely connected with your discussion classes. Each student writes two essays for each tutorial seminar in preparation for the tutorials, which are individual, one hour long meetings between tutor and student. You have two tutorials per tutorial seminar. For many, the tutorials are the highlight of the course.
Find out what topics your tutorials could be on by looking at the month long tutorial seminars.
The tutorials allowed me to be sure of myself. I became confident in the materials and learned to have confidence in them before I presented them.
It challenged me to great extents but it was fantastic at the same time. I learned a lot and the tutorials, while slightly terrifying, was a deeper kind of learning that made you understand what you wrote, or made you understand how wrong you were.
