The mission of the TutorZone is threefold: to contribute to student retention and academic achievement, to coordinate the services of well-qualified and trained peer tutors, and to assist students with the development of independent learning skills.
The TutorZone can help with:
- Learning skills vital to success in particular courses
- Practicing problem-solving skills
- Reviewing course material
Please note that the TutorZone is not able to help with specific assignments.
A TutorZone appointment is scheduled online. Students select the subject, the tutor, and the time for their appointment. Appointments must be booked at least 48-hours in advance. Pay close attention to the type of appointment- in person in the TutorZone or online via Zoom.
Tutoring sessions cost $15/hour. If you book a 90-minute appointment, the charge will be $20. All costs are billed via student accounts at the end of each month.
If you are concerned about being able to afford the cost of tutoring, please fill out our TutorZone Scholarship Application by selecting the appropriate option and providing the information requested. This will take less than a minute to complete.
Our tutors are friendly and experienced students trained to assist with the development of independent learning skills in a variety of subjects. If this is your first tutoring appointment, please read Expectations.
The TutorZone is certified as an International Tutor Training Program by the College Reading & Learning Association.

The TutorZone was established in September 2011 as a self-sustaining program by the Academic Enrichment Programs and numerous faculty who contributed their time and expertise to support the project. The TutorZone has grown immensely and now provides an average of 3,000 appointments per year in many different W&M courses. The TutorZone has developed a reputation as a resource that is both respected and recommended by faculty and students alike. In April 2015, the Tutor Zone became certified as an International Tutor Training Program by the College Reading & Learning Association.
The Coaching Program is designed to support students in a one-on-one setting to help them meet their goals. Trained coaches guide students to develop the habits and skills to succeed. All coachees are paired with a coach for recurring appointments.
All Coaching Program sessions will be conducted either in person in the TutorZone for the Fall 2022 semester.

All charges will be billed to your student account at the end of each month.
In order to be paired with a coach, all students must be referred to the program. If you are interested in receiving coaching services but you have not been referred, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and an Academic Enrichment Programs staff member will work with you to determine if the coaching program will suit your needs.
Coaches will set up recurring appointments in our scheduling system for all sessions following the first meeting.
Time Management Consultations
How do you want to use your time?
You have spent the majority of your educational years on a schedule that someone else created. Think about it; your meals, class schedule, co-curricular activities, bedtimes, work hours, and weekends were all structured by teachers, family, coaches, employers, and other people. Now you are in college where no one controls your time except you!
Think about time management as a form of investing in yourself. Take the time to really think about how you want your time to be structured. When do you feel most productive? When do you want to eat breakfast? What activity do you spend the most amount of time doing? What activity do you spend the least amount of time doing? What needs to be in place for you to be successful?
Check out the tools we have collected for you below to start structuring your time!
