TRiO Student Support Services (SSS) Tutors

Student Support Services, a program through the TRiO programs, provides academic support to first-generation, income eligible and students with disabilities.  Tutors employed by TRiO Student Support Services work 1-on-1 and by appointment with tutees.  Our goal is to provide each SSS participant with individualized tutoring that includes assistance with course content, academic success skills while building self-confidence, academic ability, and personal responsibility.

SSS tutors are not only knowledgeable in their specific academic areas, but also highly proficient in the communications skills necessary for truly valuable assistance.  While we do require that our tutors have a 3.0 cumulative GPA or above, we are seeking a combination of knowledge, compassion, and a commitment to serve.

More information, including the position description, can be found here. To apply, please submit the online application. Note: The application for SSS tutors is the same application used for ACE tutors. If you wish to apply for both positions, you only need to submit one application.

Peer Mentors represent the student viewpoint and work in collaboration with assigned SSS Advisors to promote successful outcomes.  Peer Mentors participate in: on-going training, regular staff meetings, and evaluations following CRLA Level 1 for at least one academic year.  They prioritize the mentee experience as well as maintain their own academic priorities.  Experience and understanding of people from cultures other than their own is expected.
