San Juan College tutors receive ongoing training to insure students are receiving the best services possible. Please bring your San Juan College Student ID and any other helpful materials, such as the class syllabi, handouts, textbooks, assignment sheets, and instructor comments. These materials provide us with information that allows us to provide the best services possible. Also, course specific online tutorials are available through the San Juan College Student Success Center Online Tutorials.
