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.
