The primary goal of the tutorial program is to provide student-athletes with supplemental instruction. Tutor appointments may be scheduled during CCACSA’s hours. All student-athletes may request a tutor for any subject. Each tutorial session follows the "Constructivist Teaching Model" which outlines objectives, work accomplished, and future work to be completed. Following the tutoring session, each tutor submits a report on the student-athlete's preparedness, comprehension, notes, and success in meeting the outlined objectives during the session.
The tutorial center employs more than one hundred tutors. There are two types of tutors content and strategy:
Content Tutors are subject specific instructors.
The purpose of Strategy Tutors are to provide individualized and/or small group academic support and assistance for student-athletes. Strategy Tutors assist students in their transition to LSU, developing their study skills and habits, fostering an understanding of learning and motivation, and helping them to develop academic literacy skills. Strategy Tutors also provide relevant guidance, support, and instruction in reading and writing for students with deficits in those areas.
