The Teaching Desk is a service that the school provides to its undergraduate students with interventions aimed at improving disciplinary knowledge and improving the learning process. Some schools have this organizational structure, and since they consider it an absolute priority, they have decided to streamline its use, precisely to avoid management approximations, which can actually damage organizational objectives.
The desk is generally considered for small groups (minimum 5 to maximum 10 students, even from different classes, as long as the topic on which the desk is requested is the same); Sessions targeting entire classes are not possible. Any exceptions to the number of students will be evaluated by the teacher in charge of the desk.
It is a service provided by the school that provides students with short retrievals, clarification on specific topics, support for customized retrieval and as an alternative to regular attendance of curriculum subjects or as an alternative to normal work outside of school.
This service is intended for students with moral disabilities who require additional explanations and for those who need to intensify personal training through teacher guidance and immediate correction.
Methods and times
The desk is activated at the request of the minimum number of students. Each company must be specifically identified and booked in an orderly manner.
The opposite function does not change the syllabus.
Counter service is arranged in the afternoon, almost always, and on days when the requested teachers have to agree. Each student can choose the teacher who will make the intervention, given their availability.
The selected teacher does not have to be their classmate.
The duration of each intervention usually varies from a minimum of one hour to a maximum of two depending on the actual needs of the students. The desk is useful for short retrievals, clarification on specific topics, and support for personalized retrieval, and is not intended as an alternative to the regular attendance of curriculum subjects or as an alternative to the normal work that a student must do during non-school periods.

Registrations are made at the check-in desk by completing a paper form at least 2 working days in advance (e.g. Monday Friday, Tuesday Saturday Saturday, etc.).
A maximum of two students can register for each hour / course at the counter. The duration of the desk is at least 30 minutes per student (schedule and time, of course, can be planned, otherwise, by the relevant institutions). Any exceptions in the number of students will be evaluated by the teacher in charge of the desk if interventions are required on the same topic or similar strategies.
Rules for students

Branches made during the extra hours (i.e. up to the upgrade fee) will be charged only for the hours actually performed, based on what is specified in the booking form and in the branch register.
In the absence of a reservation, if the counter is located within the hourly update quota, the teacher must be at the institution until the end of the hour; On the other hand, if the opposite time is set aside to charge outside working hours, the teacher does not need to stay in school and is not entitled to pay.

Counter-opening times can no longer be changed when defined and published on the school website.
