Online Orientation to Tutoring Services (TOOTS) is Required

Each tutor is required to take the Online Orientation to Tutoring Services prior to being assigned a student. This online orientation program is available for SSS tutors to complete from any location and at any time convenient to you. You will print a packet and watch the online information with your materials in front of you. Once you have completed your orientation, you will be ready to meet with your assigned student when you receive an assignment. Directions will be provided at the appropriate time for your orientation as a tutor for SSS. [Note: The orientation is presented directly to students, but the information is equally applicable to tutors, and you will be able to discern your roles and responsibilities as you complete the assessment.]

Tutor Training

Tutor training is provided to new and continuing tutors at various times throughout the year. If you are interested in additional training, we are here to provide the support you need! Just let us know, and we’ll be there for you! Questions? Contact us at
