The primary purpose of Learning Support Services (LSS) is to empower all students to become independent, self-advocating, and resourceful learners. Join us in LSS East, LSS West, LSS South, and the Student Computing Center for tutoring at the Olympia Campus, or see our Lacey Campus and eTutoring opportunities below.

Student Employment

One of the best ways to turn your understanding of a subject from fairly good to really good is to share what you have learned with someone else.  Student tutors share their knowledge and effective study skills with their peers, helping them to succeed in their classes and achieve their educational goals.  Working as a student tutor is a great opportunity to help others, SPSCC, and yourself.  You'll gain a deeper understanding of your subject, build your resume, and (of course) get paid!
