Tutoring Sessions

The College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences (CECAS) has chosen students that have performed well in the courses they tutor. In addition to class work concepts, they can provide techniques to study and retain course information.

Undergraduate Teaching Assistants (UTA)

General Engineering Undergraduate Teaching Assistants [UTAs] provide both in-class and out-of-classroom support to current General Engineering students. Because UTAs are in the classroom, they are better able to assist students regarding concepts and techniques taught in the courses. Support is available to any student enrolled in a general engineering course.


Programs for Educational Enrichment and Retention (PEER) and Women in Science in Engineering (WISE) offer small group tutoring in Math, Science, Computer Science, and upper-level Engineering courses by peers who have successfully completed the course and been recommended by a faculty member. Group size varies based on demand. Support is available to all students in the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences.


Residents in Science & Engineering (RISE) offers small group peer tutoring in introductory science, math, and engineering courses for those enrolled in the RISE program. Students can attend an in-person or virtual session depending on their preference and availability. In-person tutoring will be in the Lever classroom. For virtual tutoring, students in RISE will receive a link in the RISE Roundup (weekly newsletter)

Interested in Study Sessions?

The Academic Success Center offers student-led collaborative study sessions facilitated by Peer-Assisted Learning (PAL) leaders who have already successfully completed the course. These sessions allow students to connect with a supportive community of peers, develop valuable study habits, and engage in difficult content alongside their classmates. PAL Leaders are embedded in the course and continually support students at every stage throughout the semester.

Become a Tutor

We are seeking students who have an interest in sharing their knowledge of past courses with others. We offer competitive pay rates and a flexible schedule, with sessions taught virtually or on campus. As a CECAS tutor, you will meet with students to explain concepts and run through practice problems. The courses you tutor in will be based on ones you enjoy and have excelled in at Clemson.

Our staff will provide support along the way. We have proven tips and tricks on running a successful tutoring session, including a coordinator who will check in regularly to answer any questions. In addition, you will have a network of returning tutors who can assist you in navigating discussions and study groups.

The application process is simple, with only a few specifications. Once we receive your application, one of our tutoring coordinators will reach out to you on the next steps. Questions can be directed to Serita Acker.
