The Academic Skills Center will continue services online during this COVID-19 event.

  • Accommodations- Faculty will carry out accommodations for those who followed the process to disclose and request their accommodations. Anyone can refer students to Mrs. Sheri Yech, Disability Services Coodinator for additional or new accommodation requests. Click here for details. Some accommodations meant for in-person environments, may not be appropriate for an online course. We also anticipate new accommodations being necessary or additional students disclosing a disability during this time.
  • Tutoring-  Tutoring will be online using several video meeting platforms ( Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Facetime, etc.) Click here for details. As always, we suggest contacting an instructor as the first step in support. We also suggest instructional videos- youtube and Khan Academy have many available.
  • Strategy Instruction- Learning Specialist sessions can be scheduled with Sheri Yech and Dawn Shedlarski. Reach out in email and a phone or video meeting will be set. See contact info below or use academicskillscenter@kings.edu

Please keep in mind, our staff and Peer Tutors are new to this online environment too. Be patient, be kind, and keep open communication so we can make changes when possible. Best Wishes to all and stay well.
