Tutoring and Academic Support
The Lawrence Public School district and the University of Kansas will work together to ensure that students receiving accommodations through Lawrence Public Schools will also have the opportunity for support in concurrent enrollment courses. The district will provide the appropriate supports for students per Individual Educational Plans or 504s on file through the school district. If there are questions about accommodations in the classroom, please email Patrick Kelly.
Tutoring at KU
Tutoring Services in the Academic Learning Center provides students enrolled in courses at the University of Kansas and the Jayhawk Blueprint with course-specific tutoring support. For Blueprint students, we recommend our free, By-Appointment tutoring program.
1-on-1 By-Appointment Tutoring allows students to schedule a meeting with a tutor to help you understand course concepts and problems covered in the course for which you are seeking assistance. Course availability may vary by semester, but typically include 100-level STEM courses such as MATH 101 and BIOL 100. For information about which courses are available and how to make an appointment, visit the webpage linked above.
Writing Support at KU
The KU Writing Center offers free writing tutoring services, available to all students enrolled in courses at the University of Kansas and in the Jayhawk Blueprint. Our peer writing consultants can help you with writing for any class, and they help at any stage of the process from brainstorming to revision. This is a great support option for students taking ENGL 101 or ENGL 102.
We offer three different types of writing consultation appointments to meet you at your point of need:
- Face-to-Face Consultations allow you to meet with a peer writing consultant in-person at our Anschutz Library location. These appointments work well for all stages of the writing process.
- Videoconference Appointments allow you to meet in real-time with a consultant online, using video, voice and text chat. These appointments work well for all stages of the writing process.
- eTutoring appointments allow you to upload a draft of your essay and get written feedback via email. These appointments are best for later in the writing process when you have a written draft; this option doesn’t work well for brainstorming or when you need to ask the consultant a lot of questions.
