The Tutorial Program strives to meet the academic needs of all SSU enrolled students by providing free peer tutoring in over 50 courses each semester, as well as weekly drop-in math tutoring and embedded computer science lab tutoring. Our goal is to empower students with the necessary skills, tools, and mindsets to become critical thinkers and independent learners.
Our peer tutors are faculty recommended, model students who are trained to adjust their tutoring to students’ learning preferences. Tutors can help students review the course content, develop study skills, and increase their overall confidence as a student.
The Tutorial Program primarily assists students in Biology, Business, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, Physics, Math, Modern Languages and Music. We also offer drop-in math tutoring three days a week to help students with many introductory level math courses and have embedded computer science lab tutoring for select computer science courses. As a student-centered program, we also hire subject-specific tutors based on student demand.
