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.

Lacey Campus & eTutoring

Tutoring services are offered at our Lacey Campus, Room 152. Check out the Lacey Campus Tutoring Schedule for a list of subjects and times.

College Placement Test Prep

Applying to SPSCC? Our free test prep workshops help prepare prospective students for the math and English placement tests so that you start college on the right foot. Join us to learn the ins and outs of the Accuplacer, discover the most effective test-taking strategies, and complete practice questions under the guidance of an expert tutor.

---Summer Workshop Schedule Coming Soon---

Workshops are held at the Mottman Campus, Building 22 Room 105, located within Learning Support Services-West, and at the Lacey Campus Room 181.

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.


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!
