Jones Tutoring Services is a FREE academic support service for students on the Ellisville Campus and our four in-district county centers: Clarke, Greene, Jasper, and Wayne County Center. Tutors are carefully selected students who have achieved a high level of success in the course or discipline they are tutoring. Tutoring sessions can be scheduled and arranged for the convenience of the tutor and tutee.

We are currently implementing our online FREE tutoring service NetTutor. NetTutor is within each academic course inside Canvas. It should appear on the left side of the Canvas Navigation bar, which students can easily access.

Jones College offers subject-area academic tutoring with our newly added Mastery Centers on the Ellisville Campus. The Writing Center provides tutoring in English and Literature courses. The Math Center provides tutoring in Technical Mathematics, Intermediate, and College Algebra courses.
