Peer-Led Undergraduate Study (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 peer leaders (PLUS leaders) who have successfully completed the course in a previous semester. PLUS leaders meet with the Center staff and the instructor and attend the course each day with the students.
1-to-1 Tutoring is a free, appointment-based program offered to all Georgia Tech undergraduate students by the Center for Academic Success. Tutoring is available in many courses, with an emphasis on introductory freshman- and sophomore-level courses. Tutors in calculus, physics, computer science, chemistry, biology, and engineering, as well as other courses, are available to meet with students in Clough Commons Suite 273.
FOCUS Tutoring is a free, drop-in program offered in collaboration with the Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Center for Academic Success. FOCUS Tutors typically hold one or more shifts from 7-9pm in U. A. Whitaker and support BME courses such as BMED 2210, 3100, 3400, and 3520. FOCUS Tutors are also eligible to also serve as a 1-to-1 Tutor or PLUS Leader in addition to their role.
