Student Success

Through academic coaching, tutoring, and the Touchstone class, the Student Success team helps students to excel in classes and develop the skills that sustain life-long learning.

Jennifer Tharp

Welcome from the Director

In Student Success, our goal is that every student at King’s will be equipped for learning and thriving in college. We love partnering with King’s students one-on-one as they work toward their academic goals, from first-year students to seniors, and we offer small group tutoring for many classes at King’s. In our seminars, students learn to re-imagine approaches to coursework, exams, and the responsibilities of college life. We also equip Faculty Assistants and House Scholars to offer valuable peer support.

What We Do



We offer year-round academic advising to help students align their academic programs to their long-term goals. Students may also bring questions regarding change of major, four-year plans, degree audits, and study abroad opportunities to the Director of Academic Advising Danise Stokeld.
