Center for Academic Support

(816) 271-4524

The Center for Academic Support is dedicated to helping students excel academically in college. The primary goal of the Center is to complement classroom instruction by providing support in the following areas:

  1. tutoring in general studies math;
  2. tutoring in writing for any course on campus;
  3. content tutoring for most courses on campus.

Tutoring is offered both in person and online. The Center also sponsors study groups, Supplemental Instruction (SI) and workshops. Services are designed to assist students in both their general studies and upper division courses.

Staffed by full-time professionals and CRLA-certified student tutors, the Center emphasizes individualized attention and flexible services. Most students receive one-on-one tutoring, while others work in small groups or independently. The Center's website contains numerous handouts that students can download, a list of available content tutors, information about the staff, and a detailed explanation of services and hours.

The Center for Academic Support is located in Hearnes 213. The services, materials and programs the Center offers are free to Missouri Western students. For more information or to make an appointment visit
