Learning Skills Coordinators provide support to students in three major areas: one-on-one tutoring, workshops, and through the recruitment, training, and supervision of peer tutors to support student success.
During COVID-19, Selkirk College's Learning Resource Centre is as important as ever. Transitioning to a new form of learning such as online or distance can be challenging. We are here to help! Please visit our web pages to learn more about the steps to get started with online learning and how to succeed as an online learner.
Learning Resource Centres can be found on the Castlegar, Tenth Street and Silver King campuses.
The Learning Skills Coordinator on each of these campuses provides support through workshops, 1:1 tutoring and peer tutors. They can also provide handouts and links to resources that you may find useful as they complete course work. If you would like to improve your academic skills, make an appointment to get help.
If you are on the Castlegar campus, additional help is available through the Writing Centre and Math/Science Tutoring Centre (ask your instructor).
