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!
