Spring 2018 ARC tutoring runs from Tuesday 2/13 through Friday 5/11 in Marshak Hall 1104 (eleventh floor).  


Hours of Operation:

Monday through Thursday, 9:30am-5:30pm; Friday, 9:30am-3:30pm

*Note that ARC's hours follow the academic calendar, so holidays and class schedule shifts apply.


Our Academic Resource Center (ARC) is SSSP's hub for tutoring services, study groups and academic workshops. We feature on-on-one and group tutoring programs that range across the disciplines.  Our staff members are fellow students in high academic standing who have excelled in the courses they tutor.  ARC tutoring programs assist SSSP students with writing assignments or course content, and may be scheduled on a weekly or biweekly basis.


To sign up for tutoring, you must first file a referral form with your SSSP counselor, and then submit an ARC orientation webform (click here).

Within five class days after the webform has been received, the ARC Coordinator will contact you through your citymail account to set up an appointment.


You may also check your appointments online by logging into Advisortrac.

SSSP students are also invited to visit the center informally for quiet study time, improvised group meetings, or to use our computer lab.


We recruit tutors for the following academic term, so you must apply in fall for spring positions and in spring for fall positions. Qualified students should carry a 3.2 or higher cumulative GPA and have earned an A- or higher in the course(s) they wish to tutor.  Salaried tutors are paid $13 an hour regardless of student attendance.  Most of our tutoring is one-on-one.  


If you would like to tutor at ARC, please send a completed application, a resume and an unofficial transcript to  Staffing decisions are generally made in January and August for the spring and fall semesters, respectively.
