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, and the Student Computing Center for tutoring at the Olympia Campus, or see our Lacey Campus and eTutoring opportunities below.
Learning Support Services has opened a new tutoring center at the Olympia campus, LSS-South.
LSS-South is located in 35-310 (formerly the Science Study Room) and offers free, drop-in tutoring for all SPSCC students enrolled in any science course during the week.
Saturday science tutoring and all physics tutoring will remain at LSS-East (22-110).

Test Prep Website
Can’t make it to a workshop? Study up on your own using our free online Test Prep Canvas course. There you will find information about the Accuplacer tests, practice quizzes, strategies for effective test-taking, and a host of resources specific to each of the math and English exams.
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!
