Your student is our first priority, so we offer a range of academic support services to help students reach their academic goals.


Academic Support

  • Time Management: Students can work to establish a healthier lifestyle, develop a personal plan of action for managing time more effectively to get the most out of recreation, work and relationships.
  • Test Taking: Students can improve test-taking skills and grades,  learn different strategies for maximizing performance on different types of tests, and specific techniques for various content areas. Individual or group workshops can be scheduled.

English as a Second Language (ESL/ELL)

Grand View offers free English Language Learner tutoring through the Academic Enrichment Center. Our trained ELL tutor assists students at a "Tutor Table," open for 1 to 5 students at a time, and also through one-on-one sessions.  ESL courses are available through various organizations in the greater Des Moines community for students who may need more foundational classes.
