Making Appointments

  • Students can schedule appointments online or by calling or visiting the campus they wish to receive services:
    • Griffin: 770-229-3078
    • Flint: 706-646-6397
    • Henry: 770-914-4411
  • You may schedule two appointments (30 minutes) per subject each week.
  • After two scheduled appointments, students must be a walk in the remainder of the week. Be mindful that a tutor may not be available during a walk in, but we almost always have peer mentors on hand who can help you with something!
  • Students are required to call if they cannot make a scheduled appointment. Failure to cancel appointments will result in being denied scheduled appointments for the rest of the semester.

Center Guidelines

  • Sign in at our tracking station every time you visit the center, even if it is just to make an appointment or ask a quick question.
  • Come with material to work on in your session, including copies of assignment guidelines and relevant course textbooks.
  • Friends and family members may not participate in individual tutoring sessions, but any student is welcome in the center as long as he/she is not causing a disturbance to those who are working.
  • Plan to arrive early for scheduled appointments so you can get yourself organized and be prepared to begin on time.


The Study Lounge

The tutoring and mentoring center offers open study sessions in Math and English on a weekly basis. We are also excited to share that we will begin offering open study sessions specifically for students studying for the PSB test! No appointment is needed to participate in an open session. A tutor or peer mentor will serve multiple students during these times. Please see below for upcoming open study session dates and times.
