At the Student Success and Support Center (SSSC), we encourage instructors to post information about our services outside their offices and within their course websites. Some instructors find it useful to include a few sentences on the syllabus to refer students to the SSSC for help. Feel free to copy and paste the following, or copy and modify to fit the flow of your course materials.
Group Studies and Supplemental Instruction
We work with many professors and course coordinators to schedule review sessions before exams. Professors provide us with syllabi, course materials, and study guides to help our tutors prepare to lead group review sessions. We have worked with business, chemistry, computer science, engineering, linguistics, and physics faculty to facilitate multiple sessions during the semester. Students who attend group review sessions often schedule follow-up peer tutoring appointments to take advantage of SSSC services. Please call our office at 321-674-7110 to learn more about how we can help you.
