Tips for Writing Tutors
When working with students from STEM fields both in-text citations and end references should be one of the first things you help them with.
Students often forget to cite figures and tables: be sure to help students with those; even if the figure or table is original and not taken from another source, it still needs a caption: See Chapter II: 5.2 Figures and Tables for more information on using proper formatting for captions.
Often instructors will simply require APA reference style (author-date); however, be aware that many science, technology, and engineering papers use citation-sequence for the references, be sure to check what the instructor requires and be aware of the differences between the two reference styles.
