Science and Math Learning Center

We are currently offering online tutoring services until March 25th; you can email your essays to MiSun at misun.bishop@seattlecolleges.edu. Please keep the following in mind when you send us your essays for feedback:
  • Please send us your essay draft as a Word document, and include instructions from your teacher.
  • Please allow at least until the next business day for your tutor to provide you feedback (so get those drafts in well before the assignment due date!). We do not respond on the weekends.
  • When you receive a reply email from your tutor, please open the attached Word document in order to see the margin comments.

The SAM Learning Center will still be providing tutoring on a drop-in basis from Monday, March 16th through Friday, March 20th from 9am-5pm, but these will be remote sessions through Zoom technology with your tutor. The tutors are listed below with their subject areas and their unique Zoom URL to connect with them for a session. The tutoring schedule for the week is listed below that. One detail to note: If you’re waiting for a session, and the meeting closes, please rejoin using the same Zoom URL link.
