Learning Skills Specialists (Drop-In Tutoring)
Online drop-in tutoring is a free service provided by the Learning Assistance Center where curriculum students may drop in and receive help in math, science, English, writing and more. No appointment is needed.
Any student, regardless of class average, may seek assistance during the posted hours.
Math, accounting, and science help is available by visiting the WebEx site or emailing the following Learning Skills Specialists.
English, reading and writing help is available by visiting the WebEx site or the e-help link.
Follow these tips for a successful tutoring session in Math and Science:
- First, read the section(s) in which you are having trouble.
- Attempt as many of the problems as you can throughout the assignment before dropping in to the WebEx session.
- Bring specific questions and all attempted work with you to the tutoring session.
This service is to help curriculum students with concepts, not homework.
Peer tutoring, when available, is provided to any CVCC curriculum student who is retaking a class or has a grade average of "80" or below. If you find yourself in this situation, please contact Cindy Ly, Tutor Coordinator, at email@example.com about getting a one-on-one peer tutor. There is no cost for this service to our students.
