Overview:
 The Tutoring Center is an integral part of the broad range of student success services offered to West Shore students. We are available to help students learn about college and community resources, assist in locating materials, places, and people on campus, and offer support, encouragement, and positive reinforcement. The Tutoring Center provides tutoring, study skills assistance, academic and personal counseling as well as many other services designed to meet the unique needs of each student seeking our help.


Tutoring:
 Free tutoring –both individual and group—is available for eligible students through 1-1 tutoring and small groups. Students requesting these services must fill out an application at the Tutoring Center. Feel free to either drop-in to the Center or contact us via email or phone for an appointment. 


The Tutoring Center
also offers Accounting Help Labs to assist students who need occasional or intermittent help. Staffed by either adjunct faculty or professional tutors, the hours and location of these workshops vary each semester. Current information is available at our website, in the Tutoring Center and Student Services, as well as from English and Math faculty. 


Disability Access Services:
 The Disability Access Services Office (DAS) offers free assistance to individuals with documented disabilities who identify themselves as needing special services while attending the College. DAS staff members provide support services by using an individualized approach and work cooperatively with students as they develop the academic, learning, and self-advocacy skills needed to become successful learners. While the accommodations offered are individualized, typical accommodations include special testing services such as (1) test reading, proctored testing, and extended time when needed, (2) note taking services, (3) use of adaptive equipment, and (4) liaison services with community agencies and campus services.


Non-Discrimination Policy:

It is the policy of the college that no persons shall be discriminated against on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin or ancestry, age, sex, or marital status or be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination in any program or activity for which the college is responsible or which it receives federal financial assistance. This policy of non-discrimination also applies to otherwise qualified handicapped individuals.
