TRIO SSS Supplemental Tutoring:
TRIO SSS offers Supplemental Tutoring both online and in-person.
The Impact Sessions are one-to-one, for 45 minutes, and can be subject-intense or passive. These sessions develop your mastery of the subject, and supplements what you have received in the classroom.
The Co-Op Sessions are geared towards cooperative learning with master tutor facilitation. These sessions encourage discussion and internalization of concepts for deeper meaning.
Both types of sessions encourage the integration of "soft skills". As such, supplemental tutoring sessions combine academics with soft skills; thus, ensuring proficiency in time management, organization, note-taking, and test preparation necessary for long-term success in academia and beyond.
Please contact the TRIO SSS Tutoring and Educational Activities Coordinator as soon as possible to set up your scheduled appointments!
