SSC Supports & Resources

Peer Tutoring is available to all Columbia-Greene students at no cost!

Tutoring sessions are intended to support learning, understanding, and practicing of course content. Tutoring is available individually or in small groups. Appointments can be held on campus in the SSC or via Zoom using the Virtual Student Success Center.

If you need tutoring for a course that is not listed, let us know, and we will investigate tutor availability.

Note that the availability for tutoring in subjects varies for each tutor.

Academic coaches are available to help students tackle collegiate challenges by developing skills, behaviors, and habits that help students reach their full potential. They can work with students to develop an individualized study plan based on their learning styles, strengths, and areas for growth.

A coach can help students navigate college life, understand student support resources available, and engage with students in supportive communication. They can help with understanding college policy and procedures, accessing appropriate college and community services, and with educational goal-setting and problem-solving. Coaches will work with students on a variety of needs including but not limited to test-taking strategies, time management skills, note-taking skills, finding campus resources, and more.

Students don’t need to wait until they have a problem to seek academic coaching- take an offensive strategy and create a strong plan from the start.
