Tutoring Policies

  • 1-to-1 Tutoring is only available to currently enrolled Georgia Tech students.
  • Students are allowed two one-hour long tutoring sessions per week AND no more than one session per day for 1-to-1 Tutoring.
  • Students are able to make appointments no more than 2 weeks in advance for 1-to-1 Tutoring and must make appointments at least 24 hours in advance. 
  • If it is necessary to cancel an appointment with 1-to-1 Tutoring, please contact the Tutoring Reception Desk at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled appointment. You can cancel the appointment by accessing Tutortrac at https://www.academicsupport.gatech.edu.
  • Failure to attend a tutoring session for 1-to-1 Tutoring without canceling with the Center for Academic Success at least 24 hours in advance of the appointment time will result in a $15 fee charged to your student account in the Bursar's Office to cover the cost of paying the tutor and administrative overhead. This charge could result in a hold on your student account and a withholding of services such as class registration, transcript requests, etc. until the balance is cleared.
  • Staff reserve the right to cancel tutoring sessions in cases of frequent cancelation or tardiness, by request of the tutor or the student, or under other extenuating circumstances.
  • Complaints, problems, and issues concerning tutoring services, tutors, online scheduling, or any other matter pertaining to 1-to-1 Tutoring or Physics Undergraduate Study Hours should be referred to 404.385.0041 or tutoring@gatech.edu. 

How Should I Use Tutoring

  • Tutoring doesn’t replace lecture or recitation, or your professor's office hours
  • Tutoring isn’t a chance to have another student explain the content
  • Tutoring provides you with a chance to discuss course materials, ask questions, and work through practice problems and key concepts with highly trained, highly knowledgeable peer tutors

When Should I Use Tutoring?

  • Use tutoring "early and often.” Don’t wait until you’re in trouble! Our data show that many students who use Tutoring are A and B students working to stay at the top of the class, to review for a major assignment, and to generally improve their understanding of course materials. However, we’re till open to anyone who wants additional support throughout the semester.

What Should I Bring to my Tutoring Appointment?

  • Class notes, lecture notes, textbook, and any practice problems or tests distributed by instructors or TAs.
  • Anything you want to discuss is fair game—except graded work that has not yet been submitted.

What Should I Expect from Tutoring?

  • Tutoring isn’t a “get-out-of-jail-free” card; our service supplements the work required by your class.
  • You and your tutor will work through problems and concepts, with the tutor asking more questions than actual giving solutions.
  • You should leave a successful session with a better understanding of both course concepts AND what you’ll have to do to get ready for your next assignment.
