Tutoring at the Communication Center

Posted March 30, 2020

Q: Will 1-to-1 Tutoring be available?

A: Yes. While in-person tutoring is not possible, tutors will conduct video tutoring via BlueJeans. Students can schedule appointments like normal (http://success.gatech.edu) and will be able to enter the online appointment at the scheduled start time. Students are encouraged to download the BlueJeans app on their computer and mobile device before joining a session. More instructions can be found at http://success.gatech.edu/tutoring.

Q: Will PLUS still happen?

A: PLUS Leaders will develop and distribute weekly study guides for their course and host weekly two-hour remote sessions via BlueJeans where students can ask questions and work collaboratively on problems. PLUS Leaders will communicate with their class directly, but more information can be found at http://www.success.gatech.edu/plus-sessions.
