The Tutoring Center

Important Service Update:

From Jan. 12 through at least Friday, Jan. 28, several student services at South Seattle College are shifting to remote and virtual assistance only, including Tutoring.  This change has been made due to significant staffing shortages that impact our ability to provide in-person services with consistency, and to help keep our campus community safe during the current COVID-19 omicron variant surge.

Tutoring Center Virtual Operation Hours: Monday – Friday 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Virtual Services

  • LiveChat Hours: Mondays and Wednesdays, 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.


  • Online Tutoring: The Tutoring Center provides online drop-in and appointment-based tutoring through Zoom to all students enrolled at South Seattle College.  See our website for more details.
