At Supportive Learning Services (SLS), we understand that families play a vital role in helping students overcome academic challenges. We encourage families to be as involved as possible with their student’s education and to be confident that SLS will provide proactive support assistance with independent academic skills, tutoring, and personal encouragement throughout their student’s college career.
Learn in the way that’s best for you. Every student learns differently and we respect that. SLS is here to help students manage the academic, professional, and social demands of college life.
For forty years, SLS has worked to give students the tools they to overcome barriers and struggles with academic challenges.
