Getting help from tutors in competitions

During some of the Grok-hosted competitions, we provide tutoring support to students and teachers. The level of tutoring support varies depending on which competition you are in - if tutor support is available, the competition info page will specify. See our upcoming competitions page for more details.

If tutoring is enabled:

At the bottom of each problem, there's a button to message tutors. This starts a conversation with a friendly tutor, who can help you solve the problem if you're stuck and the marking system's messages aren't helping.

Tutors can see your code and are all programming experts, but don't expect them to solve the problem for you. They're there to help you understand concepts and guide you through solving the problem. Most of all they're there to help you learn, so don't hesitate to reach out. And don't be surprised if you get a message from a tutor asking if you need help!

Please remember to be as polite to tutors online as you would be in real life. Tutors are people too!
