About

Tutoring at SSS TRIO.

Student Support Services TRIO offers individualized tutoring services designed for program participants. This opportunity can help you gain a better understanding of your learning and the learning process while developing independent learning skills. These services are provided in a quiet, caring environment which maximizes your learning opportunity.

TRIO SSS tutors have ongoing opportunity for professional development to increase and improve their skills. Tutors must be knowledgeable about their area of study, but they also must show that they can explain the subject material clearly and patiently.

*Students must complete a “Request for Tutor” form each semester they are requesting a tutor. It is highly recommended that each Request for Tutor be submitted before the first month of classes in fall and spring, and before 2 weeks into classes in summer sessions. That will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

It is not so much tutoring that the mind needs, but clearer recognition and better use of what it already knows.
