Tutoring

Tutoring at William Jewell College is available free of charge and is based upon the availability of a qualified tutor. Students at William Jewell College have access to two types of tutoring:

  • Individual Tutoring: Individual tutors are available to work with students one-on-one via scheduled meeting times to provide assistance for a variety of courses. As a student, you may receive up to four free hours of individual tutoring a week in two courses. Such hours are not cumulative and you cannot “bank” unused weekly hours for later.
  • Drop-In Tutoring: Drop-in tutoring is available for select courses, such as Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, and Math. The Writing Center also has tutors available to discuss and edit papers and assignments for a variety of classes. Attending drop-in tutoring sessions do not count against total tutoring times.

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.
