Academic Skills

Helping all Dawson students achieve their goals

College students often need a little help with their studies. The role of Dawson’s Academic Skills Centre is to help students improve their learning, reading and writing skills. Students can meet with professionals and peer tutors on an individual basis or in small groups.

We are now offering online appointments to all Dawson students. Visit our online scheduling system to get support from our Skills Centre professionals. Please see below for what kinds of individualized support our professionals provide.
