SKC Tutoring Options

SKC Writing Center

To access the Writing Lab, email: writingtutors@skc.edu with the following:

  • Class name
  • What you would like help with

For example: a specific assignment, a scholarship essay, writing a proposal, thesis statement, etc.

The Online Writing Center will provide the same access to tutors that you received on campus. Tutors give feedback on your drafted writing assignments. They can help with any component of the writing process, from idea formulation to a final draft. They can help with thesis statements, outlines, citations, organization, sentence and paragraph construction, and word choice. Tutors are familiar with the writing assignments and instructor expectations for Comp I, Comp II, Writing Research Papers, and Nursing, but can help with all written work.

SKC Math & Science Lab and Tutors

To access the Math/Science Lab and Tutors, email: stemtutor@skc.edu with the following:

  • Class name
  • What you would like help with

For example: a specific assignment, test preparation, etc.

The Online Math/Science Lab provided similar services like those offered at the campus lab.  Students will be able to meet with tutors, discuss problems, ask questions, and get instruction.  Since this is a virtual lab, some services may be dependent on the student’s technology and connection.
