The SBLC provides a variety of services which go beyond the traditional practice of tutoring, as well as resources to aid in student learning and success. The primary focus of the SBLC is to help students develop the skills to become independent, effective, and efficient learners.

Please call or email for the hours of our tutors in specific subjects. The SBLC offers tutoring (individual and group) in the following areas:

  • American Indian Studies
  • Anthropology
  • Climatology
  • Economics (micro & macro)
  • Education
  • Geography (Physical and Cultural)
  • History
  • Meteorology
  • Philosophy (Logic/Intro/World/Ethical)

As the tutor's role is one of general support, ultimate responsibility for all work as to correctness, completeness, and responsiveness to the instructor's requirements rests with the student.
