Student-athletes will be working one-on-one or in small groups with tutors to review and better understand course material. Tutor sessions are not provided to student-athletes in order to give answers or to replace the necessary study time outside of class. When combined with class attendance and studying outside of class, tutoring will prepare student-athletes to be more successful in the classroom.
 
With the assistance of Student-Athlete Academic Services, tutors will be expected to facilitate required and ancillary educational sessions with students. Most tutors will be assigned regular weekly meetings with targeted student-athletes in specific subjects. Tutors are responsible for keeping their appointments and study sessions on task and academically productive. Furthermore, tutors are expected to be proactive in communicating with the Learning Specialist about scheduling, tutoring, and other related concerns.
