Tutoring Services


Peer tutoring is available to all student-athletes. Tutoring should be viewed as a supplement to the instructors’ lessons and the student’s own hard work. Currently, subject tutoring is offered in the majority of undergraduate courses with exception of English and Computer Science programming courses. Tutoring is available six days per week and through final exams. Peer tutoring is offered in either one-on-one or in a small group tutorial setting.

Peer tutors are Georgia Tech students who have been recommended (often by our GT faculty), selected, trained, and designated to offer educational services to their peers (student-athletes). All new tutors are certified through the College Reading & Learning Association (CRLA). Tutoring Certification requires all new tutors to satisfy the following:


Request a Tutor

All student-athletes must fill out a tutor request form for any course they wish to receive peer tutoring. Sessions are scheduled after the first week of classes and continue through the final exams. Tutorial assignments are arranged on an appointment basis and will be conducted in the Hearn Academic Center’s tutorial facilities or in our designated study hall areas. Once a tutor is requested, the student-athlete should check his/her Teamworks account regularly.

If a tutor fails to maintain the following level of responsibility, please report your concerns to our Assistant AD of Academic Services, or our Compliance staff.


Become a Peer Tutor

Thank you for your interest in tutoring with the Georgia Tech Athletics Association. The tutor program is the core of our academic support unit and qualified tutors are integral to the success of this program. The goal of academic tutoring is to help facilitate learning and enhance the course material; it is not to guarantee athletic eligibility. Our focus is on the “student” in student-athlete. Peer tutors are students who have been selected, trained, and designated to offer educational services to student-athletes. Tutorial services are intentionally designed to assist student-athletes toward attainment of their defined educational goals. These services are not meant to take the place of student-athlete class attendance or serve as substitute professors.

In the Hearn Academic Center, peer tutors lead course-based tutorial sessions, either one-on-one or in small groups.  Please know that we are seeking individuals with strong communication skills and those with an ability to relate to students with diverse academic backgrounds. As we are guided by the codes of academic conduct and integrity set forth by the ACC, the NCAA, and Georgia Tech, this responsibility is one that should be taken seriously. Tutor-student placements will be made based upon the students’ subject requests and their daily availability. You will be scheduled up to a maximum number of hours per week as you’re willing to work. The ability to work with the same individual or group weekly throughout the semester provides both you and the students assigned a level of consistency, as well as the opportunity to establish and maintain rapport.
