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.
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 for which 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 four hours 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. There are 2 types of tutoring:
- Drop-In Tutoring – 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 add tutoring sessions to your own calendar using the calendar below.
- Individual Tutoring – An individual tutor will be assigned after you submit an official tutoring request. You will then need to contact the tutor directly to schedule your individual tutoring session. Contact the Director of the Academic Achievement Center if you have any scheduling problems.
Students looking to meet with the Director will need to set an appointment using the link above. Be sure to set your appointment under the necessary service.
