The Center for Academic Achievement encourages students to take advantage of its academic support services. The Center’s professional staff includes faculty who specialize in writing, reading, research methods, and learning differences (LD/ADD).  The staff also includes over 40 peer tutors from graduate and undergraduate programs. The Center provides assistance with writing, reading, math, library research, study skills, organizational skills, and content across many fields. Students work on specific course requirements such as papers, projects, presentations, and exam preparation. Students work with tutors and professional staff as they exchange ideas, make use of feedback, and develop new skills. Additionally, selected tutors work with students to prepare for the Communications and Literacy subtests of the Massachusetts Test for Educator Licensure (MTEL).   

Tutoring on-campus is available to all students currently enrolled in classes in Lesley’s degree-granting programs. Tutorials are offered on a by-appointment basis during daytime, evening, and weekend hours. To find out more about the Center's services, call 617.349.8459 or stop by the Center for Academic Achievement, 30 Mellen Street, Doble Hall, Suite 220.   

All students enrolled in off-campus, low residency and on-line degree granting programs may access online tutorial services. Students can consult the submission guidelines from the Center’s services page.
