Tutoring

SSS provides free tutoring support for all of its program participants in a number of different subjects both by appointment and on a drop-in basis. Drop-in schedules are available at the SSS office and below. Anyone can see a drop-in tutor during the time shown, so just come to the Tutorial Center. If you require tutoring in a subject other than those listed on this page, contact Josh Perry or the SSS office at 607-777-2024.

Tutoring Location

All SSS tutoring is held in the SSS/EOP Tutorial Center in UU-263. This is a shared space for SSS and EOP students. If you are not a member of SSS, but think you might be eligible, stop by our office in UU-256 or apply online. Students who are not a part of either program should refer to the University Tutoring Services.

SSS is also on Discord, where you can chat with others in your classes and catch one of our tutors once in a while. Walk-ins and appointments still make up the bulk of our tutoring, but ask your academic counselor how to get on Discord!
