The Tutoring Center

Operations Update:

The Tutoring Center provides both in-person and online drop-in and appointment tutoring to all students enrolled at South Seattle College.  


Keep in mind that we will be capping the limit to two appointments per day for each student; in other words, students will not be able to schedule more than two 30-minute appointments back-to-back with tutors on any given day.

To get tutoring, first select a center from the list below:

MAST (Math and Science Tutoring): Helps with transitional studies, college-level math, chemistry, physics, biology, statistics, and CSC courses.

Writing Center: Provides writing assistance to all students registered in any academic course at South that has written assignments, such as English, History, Psychology, Economics, Environmental Studies, and many more.

WELL (Writing & English Learning Lab): Helps with writing and general language support to South’s global community of English language learners. For ESL, IEP, High School 21+, GED, College Prep, I-BEST/Career Training, Pivot Point, or any Professional Technical Career Training courses.
