The Center for Writing & Academic Achievement (CWAA)


Our Mission

   We believe everyone learns differently.

The Center for Writing and Academic Achievement (CWAA) is an inclusive space where students can discover confidence both inside and outside the classroom. From professional and peer tutoring to subject labs and academic skills, our services cover all academic disciplines at no additional cost.  We tutor over (25) individual subjects in addition to writing in all subjects.

Our Approach

We assist students at every stage of the learning process.

Everyone benefits from talking to someone about a new idea in class, successful ways to study, or starting a research paper. That's why our data shows that students who attend peer-tutoring see a difference in their grades. Our peer tutors love what they do and are here to guide you through each of your courses at any point in your Stonehill College career.

Our objective is help you build confidence both inside and outside of the classroom. Whether you want to go from a B+ to an A or want to talk-through a paper idea, our tutors are here for you.

Our Services

We are accessible.

Our peer tutors are trained to adapt their tutoring to fit any student's level or ability. We refer to this highly collaborative style as the whole-person approach.
