Tutoring is a free service provided to Jacksonville University undergraduate students. Tutoring through the ASC is not a service provided to the general community.
The Academic Support Center (ASC) is open for tutoring for JU undergraduates. Students have three ways to schedule an appointment:
- Stop by the ASC (Swisher Library 3rd Floor)
- Call the ASC at 904-256-7123
- Schedule online; see instructions here
The ASC will be offering both virtual and in-person tutoring during the following hours for Fall 2021:
- Monday - Thursday: 12 noon to 9 p.m.
- Friday: 12 noon to 4 p.m.
- Saturday: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The ASC peer tutors will be available for individual, in-person tutoring in the ASC. We will do our best to strike a balance between in-person and virtual tutoring hours for all tutors and subject areas.
Please Note: Face coverings are required for in-person tutoring sessions in the ASC.
We highly recommend scheduling an appointment in advance, but you can drop by the ASC or try online for an available tutor. If no one is available when you 'drop in' the assistants will help you schedule an appointment. You can schedule an appointment up to two weeks in advance or as little as 15 minutes before the session. All tutoring appointments are scheduled for 50 minutes; your appointment can last from just a few minutes up to the 50-minute limit, depending on your questions and concerns.
Instructions for scheduling an appointment can be found in the "Make An Appointment" tab to the left.
Tutoring at Jacksonville University
We help students become stronger, more confident learners. We assist students in developing the necessary skills and strategies for successful learning and realizing their academic goals. Our primary goal is to help JU students reach their academic potential through peer assistance.
The peer tutors are all JU students who are successful in their studies and welcome the opportunity to help their classmates succeed. All tutors go through extensive training aligned with the standards by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) and must maintain a minimum of a 3.2 GPA. Many tutors are also Resident Assistants, Student-Athletes, leaders of Student Government, Research Assistants, and more.
Tutors can assist students with course material and with developing and improving successful learning strategies. Our services are available to all undergraduate students for no additional charge. For Fall 2021, our services include:
- One-on-one Tutoring
- In Person
- Weekly Tutoring (individual)
- Online Resources
Note: Brainfuse Online Tutoring will not be available this semester, as we have our own JU tutors with virtual availability to support our distance learners.
