​Just can't figure it out? Having trouble with a paper or presentation? Tutoring is available in a number of subject areas in the LRC. For the most part, students can expect to work one-on-one with a certified peer tutor or a college instructor. Some group tutoring and embedded tutoring is also available.

For students who are unable to come to campus, online tutoring is available 24/7 through NetTutor. Students are able to access NetTutor directly through Canvas or may acquire access through the Library's webpage. LRC staff are on hand to assist students with NetTutor use.

Traditional, face-to-face tutoring is offered through the LRC's Tutoring Center (TC) and the Reading & Writing Center (RWC). Both Centers provide:

  • Walk-in tutoring
  • Scheduled tutoring
  • Support for group and embedded tutoring
  • Support for online tutoring
  • Internet-connected computers
  • Instructional resources (such as dictionaries, handbooks, and textbooks)
  • Friendly and helpful staff

The Tutoring Center supports a wide variety of subject areas, from math and the sciences to business and foreign languages. The Center also provides graphing calculators.

The Reading & Writing Center assists students with reading and writing assignments in any discipline but with a focus on English courses.  It also provides assistance with documentation (MLA and APA), proofreading, job and university applications, personal essays and statements, and preparation for the Writing Skills Test (WST).

Center and Peer-Tutor Certification
The LRC's tutoring centers are certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). The CRLA is an international authority that certifies organizations and individual tutors who meet its professional training and review standards.
