SSS Tutoring

 

The GCCC SSS staff members want to make sure that each SSS student has all the help he or she needs to succeed in any course. We are making it mandatory that any SSS student with a "C" or below in any course needs to seek out tutoring. Also, we are requiring that any SSS student who has failed or withdrawn from a course must see a tutor if they retake that course. To make this possible, we have arranged for a several tutoring options.

Individual Tutoring

We have arranged for several students and other members of the community to serve as individual tutors for any student in the SSS program. These tutors can help you with courses in math, science, english, and reading. Speak to your SSS advisor to set up a time to meet one-on-one with a tutor.

Drop-In/Group Tutoring

If you want to meet with a tutor but can't find a good time to meet with our SSS tutor, or if you would like to have a group of people meet with an advisor together, your SSS advisor can refer you to one of the tutors in the Comprehensive Learning Center (CLC) in the library. Your advisor will provide you with a log sheet, which you will need to bring with you to the CLC. The paraprofessional behind the tutoring desk will need to sign your log sheet when you arrive and again when you leave.
