Individual Tutoring & Peer Mentoring

for SSS TRiO program students

College courses may be challenging for a variety of reasons. SSS provides tutorial services to help you gain an extra edge in your coursework. Our tutors are trained and certified with the CRLA, the College Reading and Learning Association. We also offer group tutoring in math as well as a HESI study group. The benefits include grade improvement, learning new study skills, and time management.


  Tutoring Requirements

Before receiving individualized tutoring, students must first meet with an SSS TRIO program advisor, and be accepted into the program. Then the student who is interested in tutoring may make an appointment to see Sara Holter, the tutorial specialist at the Prescott campus, or, on the Verde, speak with Linda Evans about setting up your tutoring.

Peer Mentoring

Mentoring is designed to help students become acclimated to college life and be better informed of the services available to college students.

The Student Support Services Mentoring program pairs second year SSS students with first year SSS students as peer mentors. Mentored students are more likely to stay in school as mentors provide students with personal encouragement, help them navigate the college system and help them solve problems of everyday college life.

"Thank you to ALL the caring and supporting TRIO members . You guys ROCK as advisors and coaches."
