Tutoring Center

Peer tutoring and supplemental instruction, offered in-person or online, provides students with an additional opportunity to receive extra assistance in challenging courses.

GSW is extremely special and unique because it provides an atmosphere where students are able to build intimate connections with many people on campus as well as have plenty of opportunities for growth. Being a part of a tight-knit community really makes me comfortable calling GSW my home away from home.
