Empowering students to succeed through individual tutoring, academic support and advocacy.
At the Center for Academic Achievement, we offer peer tutoring to undergraduate and graduate students taking classes in degree-granting programs at Lesley University. You can focus on projects involving writing, reading comprehension, library research, brainstorming, or time management. Out tutors can work with you one-on-one or in small groups as we exchange ideas and feedback, explore your learning style, and help you develop new skills.
We also provide support for students with learning differences (LD) and for students whose first language is other than English (ESL). We also offer online tutoring services to all students enrolled in Lesley off-campus, degree-granting or low residency programs.
We offer academic support to all students enrolled in courses within a Lesley degree-granting program. Central to our mission is the belief that cognitively capable students have diverse ways of learning related to their cognitive, experiential, and cultural differences.
We provide support to students in their academic requirements and assist them in becoming more independent and successful learners, equipped with knowledge of their abilities so as to gain a deeper educational experience.
We offer peer tutoring, online tutoring support, and test administration for students with accommodations.
Our policies and practices encompass all students, including those with Learning Disabilities and English Language Learners.
Academic accommodations can provide the opportunity for students to become full participants in their academic program. Learn more about arranging for academic accommodations, including for testing.
All students enrolled in a degree completion program through the Center for the Adult Learner, off-campus cohorts, low-residency programs, or online degree granting programs may take advantage of our online tutoring service. Learn more.
We provide peer tutoring, which is a form of collaborative learning using a non-directive approach. Our tutors can help you with brainstorming, exploring a topic, organizing papers or projects, strengthening your writing, library research, test preparation, time management, reading and math concepts, and other course content. Tutors do not mark your papers as an instructor would, but rather guide you through editing your work.
While nearly every student can benefit from tutorials and workshops, students in particular who may benefit are:
