  • Non-AE Drop-In Tutoring

  • 1-to-1 Tutoring
    1-to-1 Tutoring is a free, appointment-based, CRLA Certified tutoring program offered to all Georgia Tech undergraduate students.  1-to-1 tutoring sessions are designed to be student led, so it is important that students are prepared to articulate their thoughts and be actively engaged in the problem-solving process while visiting a tutor.  Tutors do not lecture or re-teach the material.  Rather, they are trained to help students pinpoint areas of confusion and guide them through. 
  • Peer-Led Undergraduate Study (PLUS) Sessions
    PLUS sessions provide opportunities for students enrolled in traditionally challenging courses to work together to review course content, develop learning and study strategies, and prepare for exams.  These voluntary sessions are offered several times each week and are facilitated by PLUS leaders who have already successfully completed the course.  PLUS leaders attend the course daily with the students. 
  • Learning Assistant Program (LAP)
    LAP offers support to courses by providing Learning Assistants—students who are prepared to provide support for student learning in an interactive classroom environment. LAs help facilitate active learning and collaborative instruction in lecture, recitation, studio, and/or lab. LAs guide or coach students by sharing skills and knowledge they have already learned from taking the course.  In addition, they help identify and address student difficulties with course content.  
  • Academic Coaching
    Academic Coaching provides students with the chance to work individually with professional staff members to enhance their academic skills, gain confidence, discover motivation, and improve performance.  Students usually schedule a 45-60 minute meeting every two weeks or once a month, depending on their individual need.  Academic coaching is available year-round through scheduled appointments.  
  • Recitations
    Recitations are optional sessions in support of for-credit courses, and are non-credit and non-billable—meaning that no tuition/fees are assessed, nor does they affect financial aid/scholarships.  Recitations are designed to provide time for application of conceptual knowledge and extension of instruction that occurs in lecture through problem-solving or discussion.  AE utilizes Undergraduate Teaching Assistants (UTAs) who support the following courses:  AE 2010, AE 2220, and AE 3030.
  • Courses
    • GT 2100:  Success Seminar

    • GT 2801:  Study Strategies
      Course for students on Academic Probation providing solutions-based opportunity to learn skills, strategies, and ways of thinking that will assist in getting students into good academic standing and develop practical, transferrable learning techniques. 
  • Mentors in Residence
    Mentors in Residence is a resource that allows you to select a mentor from a diverse list of professionals, and set up a half-hour appointment to talk with that person about topics of interest to you.  Your career.  The state of the industry.  New technical trends.  Anything!  Students can connect with professions who can answer questions and give you guidance about the career they are building at Tech.  Students are encouraged to meet with as many mentors as they would like.
