Academic Achievement Center
Our vision is to be a welcoming, integrated, and collaborative learning environment that serves as a vital resource for academic support and life-long learning to the college and community.
Click the sign above to submit a formal tutoring request. Only formal requests via this method will be accepted (no emails, phone calls, or walk-in requests, please).
All students at William Jewell College are eligible to receive tutoring, provided by the Academic Achievement Center, at no charge. There may be certain courses where tutors are not available. In such cases, your faculty member is your first resource for your courses.
As a William Jewell student, you may receive up to four hours of free individual tutoring per week (two free hours in two courses). Such hours are not cumulative; you cannot “bank” unused time for later. Any tutoring above two free hours for two courses would require that you hire a private tutor. Note: if you hire a private tutor, the price must be negotiated by you and the prospective tutor.
You may request an individual tutor or take advantage of the drop-in tutoring sessions. Drop-in tutors are available during assigned days and times while individual tutors will meet with you one-on-one via scheduled meeting times. You can view the Drop-In Tutoring Flyer or visit the Center’s Google calendar for details.
Individual tutors will meet with you one-on-one via meeting times you set with them. After you submit an official request you will be sent your tutor’s name and William Jewell College email address. You need to contact the tutor directly to schedule your tutoring session. A tutor has 48 hours to respond to respond to your message with their availability.
If you have issues scheduling sessions, please contact the Director of the Academic Achievement Center. Once you are assigned a tutor, you will receive access to the Center’s policies.
Students are welcome to set appointments with the Academic Achievement Center via the online scheduler. There are 3 types of appointments:
- Academic Assistance is for students who are on probation/warning, or whose dismissals have been appealed.
- COL 95 is for students enrolled in COL 95.
- General Appointments are to discuss learning strategies, study skills, time management, text anxiety, or any additional academic support that may be needed.
