Excel Languages and Social Sciences Center

Tutor Assisting Students in the LSSCThe Excel Languages and Social Sciences Center (LSSC) provides tutoring and other learning support services for Spanish, American Sign Language (ASL), French, German, Japanese, and Chinese.  We also support group, individualized, and in-classroom tutoring for Anthropology, Geography, Sociology, Philosophy, Business, Information Systems, and English for international students (graduate and undergraduate).  

Regularly attending tutoring sessions and studying in dedicated learning spaces results in an increase of up to two full letter grades in one or more courses.  Students who participate in tutoring and collaborative learning environments persist and graduate at higher levels compared to their peers who do not participate in tutoring.  

LSSC tutors really enjoy supporting students learning new languages. They specialize in conversation, grammar, and cultural aspects of courses. They work closely with the Languages and Social Sciences faculty to best support student success. 

Tutoring sessions are scheduled in the LSSC (Dwire Hall 270), unless otherwise indicated. You are welcome to call the LSSC (719.255.3690) to confirm if a session has not been cancelled due to illness or weather. You can also check on the LSSC Facebook page for up to date cancellations.

If you have specific tutoring schedule needs (ex. different days/times and online tutoring needs) or suggestions, please contact Dr. Sandy Ho (sho@uccs.edu).
