The PASS programme can potentially provide additional tutoring for Pasifika students at no extra cost. The way it works is that once you register and indicate which courses you need a tutor for, the Pacific Development Team will attempt to recruit a tutor who has done that course (if a tutor is not already employed) and adds them to the PASS Tutor List (see below). Students are able to contact the relevant tutor’s on the Tutor List to arrange additional tutoring.

How to use PASS Effectively

Firstly read the terms of use above. It is important to note that PASS is not an alternative to attending your lectures and tutorials; it should be used to supplement your learnings from lectures and tutorials. In addition, PASS tutorials are not designed for students to show up with no course materials or questions. To use PASS effectively, you should attempt the following as much as possible:

  1. Attend all of your lectures and tutorials. Take notes, and highlight parts you do not understand or find difficult.
  2. Do all required readings, and once again take notes and highlight parts you do not understand or find difficult.
  3. If your enquiry is in regard to an assignment or essay, we encourage you to attempt as much as you can, and highlight the parts you do not understand.
  4. We encourage you to ask your lecturer or tutor for the course for help understanding the parts you found difficult.
  5. Where you are still not quite confident with the content, email or text the  PASS tutor. Include  (1) the course code, (2) useful information, eg. if it an essay, send the essay question, or if it is an equation, send the equation, (3) days and time you would be free to meet. Tutors should reply to you within two days. If a tutor takes longer than this, please contact Riki Welsh.

 By following these steps we hope you will get the most out of the PASS programme. Happy studying!

Terms of Use

 

  1. All domestic Pacific students are eligible for a maximum of 30 hrs of supplementary tutoring for your courses throughout the year from the PASS programme.
  2. To register for the programme you must apply online (you only need to do this once per year). If the tutor you require is not on the list, let Riki Welsh know and we will attempt to recruit an appropriate tutor. Please note that requesting a tutor does not guarantee we will find one, but we will try!
  3. PASS Tutor sessions can be 1-2hrs in length and group sessions are preferred where there is more than one student requesting tutoring for a particular course (this is especially encouraged for Engineering students).
  4. New Zealand scholar students have access to New Zealand scholarship tutoring through the Student Care Team. Please ask us if you would like us to refer any of the tutors employed by PASS to your Student Support Advisor as a potential NZAid tutor.
  5. Tutoring will only happen on campus or via phone or email. Where other arrangements are wanted, please check in with Riki Welsh Pacific Team Leader first.

PASS Learning Skills is run jointly with the Academic Skills Centre, UC Library and Pacific Development to provide academic skills workshops and one-to-one drop-in assignment and study planning support for Pacific students.

The first of this series of four interactive sessions is a workshop on Skills for University study. Then every following Thursday until week four of term one there will be additional sessions on reading and note-taking; critical thinking and analysis of the assignment question; referencing and editing.

PASS Library Skills is a jointly run programme of library orientations & referencing skills with UC Library Pasifika contacts in each library and Pacific Development. We'll let you know upcoming workshops here throughout the year, but please feel free to get in touch with any of the Pasifika UC Library contacts for citation, referencing and finding resources anytime.
