College Access Mentors - Tutors (CAM-T) are personnel who work in
and out of the classroom as tutors and role models/motivators of
GEAR UP students. CAM-T not only helps students overcome academic
challenges they face, such as poor grades, or homework problems,
but also instills positive academic values, beliefs, and attitudes
that promote college and career readiness. They serve as both

intelligence, and metacognitive skills. Ideally, academic mentors
are alumni of the school or a school very similar helping to foster
