Learning Enrichment and Assistance Program

LEAP (Learning Enrichment and Assistance Program) is an academic support service connected to Gardner-Webb University’s Undergraduate Student Success Center. LEAP’s flagship service is course-specific Peer Tutoring. Through our course-specific tutoring services, we hope to contribute to the tutors’ and tutees’ personal development and academic success. While LEAP is not equipped to offer tutoring assistance for all Gardner-Webb courses, we strive to provide tutoring assistance for frequently requested courses found within Gardner-Webb University’s curriculum. LEAP is one of the many student resources Gardner-Webb University offers undergraduate students in need of academic assistance.

LEAP peer tutoring provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to schedule an individual tutoring appointment with a peer tutor who has previously excelled or is currently excelling in the requested course. During the student’s tutoring session, the tutee will receive individual attention in a supportive environment in which he or she has the opportunity to discuss course-specific concepts, review course- specific material, and/or prepare for a course- specific exam or presentation. Peer tutoring generates no additional fees for undergraduate students.

LEAP is open to student input and needs as we seek to provide the best tutoring services possible. Our policies and responsibilities are developed to benefit the student-learning process.
