Do You Need An Academic Boost?

Students build independence and effective learning habits through active-learning, increased confidence and improved study habits.  Tutoring provides course-content assistance to students, free of charge, in most disciplines.

Tutors are selected through an interview process and the recommendation from their instructors or the tutorial coordinator. Qualified tutors must receive at least a grade of B+ or above in the courses being tutored or demonstrate equivalent experience. Tutors gain professional development through training and actual work experience. The King's College Tutoring Program is certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). Tutors, who meet specific requirements, may receive recognition as a certified tutor through CRLA. King's College has been certified at Levels I and II.
