TRIO SSS employs a staff of professional tutors who hold bachelors and masters degrees in their subject areas.

Tutoring is scheduled both by appointment or walk-in. Scheduled appointments will take precedence over walk-ins, but please stop in any time that you need academic support. With notice, tutors can be scheduled outside of regular office hours.

During the 2021-22 academic year, four tutors offered over 80 hours of tutoring each week.

You can contact TRIO SSS by phone at (906) 487-7296, email terri.olsen@finlandia.edu or in person in Nikander 11 to schedule your tutoring appointment. You are also welcome to walk in.

We encourage students to use the TRIO SSS academic lab to sit and complete your homework or studying, even if you don’t think that you need tutoring. If a questions arises, the professionals are right there next to you to help!

Student Expectations

To ensure each tutoring session is beneficial and productive, students should do their class assignments before visiting. Students should come prepared with all necessary materials (textbook, syllabus, class notes, writing material, etc.) and have specific questions prepared for their tutors.

These are a few things to keep in mind when you seek the help of tutors:

  • Tutors will not do your homework.
  • Tutors will not give you the answers.
  • Tutors will help you review your work.

Tutors will explain concepts, rules and methods that you do not understand.
