Why Use SWCeS Tutors?

Certain subjects can be challenging for an individual. Some students face hurdles with different topics and at different levels than their peers; others need motivation. All students can thrive with the one-on-one attention we can provide at the eSchool while working through their curriculum. Using an eSchool tutor who delivers one-on-one content and instruction can help students flourish in many different ways:
~ Individual learning experience
~ Self-esteem builder
~ Can encourage independence and responsibility
~ One-on-one individual attention
~ Comfortable/safe work environment
~ Improvement in academic performance
~ Build study skills and executive functions
The SWCeS tutors are all certified teachers in the state of Colorado and are a complimentary support provided by the eSchool.  Students can connect with tutors in person and virtually.  Many students have a weekly appointment set for the semester with our various content specialists and other students reach out as needed, but regardless, there is an eSchool tutor for your needs.

Why Come into the eSchool Learning Center?

What students and parents are saying about the eSchool Learning Center:
“I get so much work done when I am at the learning center.”
“It’s fun to meet some of the other eSchool students in person.”
“It’s like a library where I don’t have to whisper.”
What is the Learning Center?

The Southwest Colorado eSchool Learning Center in Durango is a place for our students to come in and work on their schoolwork. We have small and big group spaces for students. Academic support and troubleshooting is always available to students along with snacks. Bring your own device and use our network or use one of the chromebooks that we have here.

Where is the eSchool Learning Center? 

We are located in the Commons Building @ 701 Camino del Rio, Suite 220 Durango, CO 81301.  We are walking distance to downtown and close to the Durango Transit Center

What if I don’t have a ride to the learning center or live outside of Durango?

Remember that we meet with students virtually all the time. This is always an option for you.  We realize that not everyone lives close to our learning center in Durango. Did you know that we also have an office in Cortez? We sure do. The address is: 2003 Industrial Park Road
Cortez, CO 81321. Well I live in Dove Creek or Pagosa Springs or Dolores or Silverton, what should I do? The first step is to communicate with us and let us know you need support. Let’s work together to find the best way to support you.

I thought this was an online school, why would I want to come and learn in person?

Just because the Southwest Colorado eSchool delivers its content online it doesn’t mean that we can’t meet in person. Being in person at the learning center can provide an opportunity for students to connect and socialize with other eSchool students. We are able to offer many learning support to students when they come into our learning center. Tutoring, academic counseling, weekly planning to name a few of the activities that can be supported. The staff here at the eSchool always enjoys the opportunity to get to know our students and families better.
