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. Your faculty member is your first resource for your courses.
You may request an individual tutor or take advantage of the drop-in tutoring sessions. Individual tutors will meet with you one-on-one via scheduled meeting times, while drop-in tutors are available during assigned days and times.
As a student, you may receive up to two free hours of individual tutoring a week per course, for up to two courses. Such hours are not cumulative-that is you cannot “bank” weekly hours not used and use them later. Anything above two free hours for two courses would require that you hire a private tutor. Note that if you hire a private tutor, the price must be negotiated by you and the prospective tutor.
You will be sent your tutor’s William Jewell College email address. You need to contact the tutor directly to schedule tutoring sessions. A tutor has 48 hours to respond. If you have issues scheduling sessions, please contact the Director of the Academic Achievement Center.
Once a student is assigned a tutor, they will receive access to the Center's policies.
Online tutoring will begin Sunday, August 24th. Drop-in hours will not be offered with the College is closed. These dates are as follows: Labor Day (August 31 and Sept. 1), Fall Break (Oct. 9-12), Thanksgiving Holiday Break( Nov. 26-30). Drop-in tutoring is also not available during Finals Week.
