Learning Enrichment and Assistance Program

Gardner-Webb University undergraduate students who would like assistance with coursework are encouraged to contact the LEAP office. Our Peer Tutoring program, located in the Tucker Student Center, provides assistance for a number of courses and subject areas and is free of charge. The tutoring services will seek to clarify course content, emphasize concepts, strengthen background skills needed for mastery of material, practice application of materials to content, reinforce learning, and promote independent learners. Prior to making an appointment online with a tutor via WebbConnect, LEAP recommends that a student first speak with his/her professor about concerns in particular classes. Professors can often provide insight into what area(s) need attention or what strategies may be helpful in specific courses.



In order to enhance the student academic experience, Gardner-Webb University has partnered with Smarthinking to provide a convenient way to access the support needed to achieve success. GWU students enrolled in the degree completion program have access to a total of four (4) free hours of Smarthinking online tutoring. Access to Smarthinking is provided in all Blackboard courses and WebbConnect under Academic Support.
