Do the tutors proofread and correct my grammar and punctuation errors?

No. Tutors help students become better writers by helping them identify their own errors and suggesting ways to correct them, so the students can do this for themselves in the future. Many times it is important for tutors and students to work through the corrections that instructors have already made on graded papers.
