Academic Center for Excellence (ACE)

The Academic Center for Excellence (ACE), located on the first floor of Bristol Hall, provides peer tutoring in math, writing, and speaking. In addition to these in-house tutoring services, the ACE coordinates all other peer tutoring services on the Bristol campus (such as Chemistry, Physics, Anatomy & Physiology, and Spanish) by providing a comprehensive schedule of availability and a centralized tutoring location for these additional disciplines.

The ACE’s online presence includes the Online Writing Lab, facilitated through King’s English Department, and is available to all students, as well as additional tutoring options in a variety of disciplines through King’s online tutoring partner, Upswing. Upswing is a free service accessed through a link on the Student Portal, a link in every Canvas course, and in the “help” section in Canvas.
