  1. The tutoring services have always been great at Shoreline CC, no matter which tutor has helped me! The only downside is that they only offer 2 hours of free tutoring a week and a lot of the time I need more than that, especially for my classes that are heavy science and math based. I’ve used some free resources online for self-tutoring but by far my best option has been a private tutor (like Sandweiss) in addition to the hours I get at Shoreline Community College.
