In addition to classroom conversation—and conversation among students outside of class—students have frequent opportunities for one-on-one discussion with faculty members.
Any student interested in meeting with a faculty member outside of class.
At a time agreed upon by the student and faculty member. Spontaneously, when a student drops by a tutor's office.
Informal conversations that allow students and faculty to get to know each other better. Explorations of ideas both related and unrelated to class sessions. Talk of personal interests and possible career paths. Discussion of everything from the seemingly trivial to the meaning of life itself.
By arranging to meet in a tutor's office, a community
space on campus, or a local coffee shop. Through
the “Take a Tutor to Lunch” program, in which students and faculty members share a meal in the campus dining hall.
Because meaningful dialogue is an important part of the lives of both students and tutors at St. John’s. Because meeting one-on-one with a faculty member can advance understanding or inspire the pursuit of new questions.
