Peer Tutoring
 
2013-2014 SSS Peer Tutors

Student Success Services (SSS) offers tutoring! One-on-one tutoring is free to participants and is available on campus for several courses. Tutors employed through SSS are PSC students who have met eligibility requirements and have been recommended from faculty members of the college. One hour sessions are available throughout the week to meet your scheduling needs. Students who are interested may call (402) 872-2305 with questions or stop by CATS 009 to request a tutor.

 

Students request a one-on-one tutor for several reasons. They are less intimidated while working one-on-one with a tutor than they would be working in a larger group. When students maintain regular scheduled appointments with their assigned tutor, the students get the support they need to succeed in the course.

 

The tutors have previously taken the course for which they are tutoring, therefore, they are knowledgeable of the course content and the requirements of the instructors. Tutors also receive yearly training on learning styles, modeling good study skills and problem-solving skills, and other tutor strategies so they can help their peers succeed. This training also helps our program maintain its accreditation by the CRLA, College Reading and Learning Association.
