SSS Tutoring

Student Support Services offers free tutoring for its participants. SSS strives to provide one-on-one tutoring sessions, but at times a group of two or three students will be formed when tutor availability is limited.  We offer tutoring in 100-400 level courses and expect students participating in the tutoring component to make it a weekly commitment.

Participants who want to receive tutoring must stop by the SSS Office in order to complete a Tutorial Request Form.  Once your request is made, the Tutor Coordinator makes every effort to fill the request. 

Below is the list of SSS Supported Courses for the Spring 2015 Semester:
  • BIOL 110-150
  • CSC 100-220
  • MATH 121-472
  • ENGL 110-470
