Through faculty and staff referrals, each of our tutors/mentors have been interviewed and selected by the TRIO-SSS professional staff. In addition, they have been trained and have been found competent to provide effective assistance to our program participants.
The Tutoring/Mentoring Program has been designed to, guide and assist students with a particular subject or field of study, provide on going support, advice and encouragement, and share experiences that will assist students in their overall development. This service represents an important form of instruction that impacts students who are not only struggling with the academic and personal demands of college but to also encourage students to maintain, and stay on top of the demands to ensure good academic standings.
Furthermore, one of our greatest goals is to help students become independent learners. Our Peer Tutors are, not an information or answer dispenser. Students need to understand and be reminded that they are responsible for their own learning. It is the student’s responsibility to attend classes regularly, do the assigned work, projects, and readings.
These services are available during the Fall, Spring and Summer Sessions during TRIO-SSS normal working hours:
Monday through Friday (8:30 AM - 4:30PM)
Except for Weekends, Institutional Holidays, and Winter Break
