Two tutoring progams

The LAC has two tutoring programs: General Education (Transfer) and Career and Technical Education Tutoring. To determine which program is most appropriate for you, check this list of vocational majors; in order to qualify for Career and Technical Education tutoring, you must first have declared a major from this list. 

NOTE:  Tutoring in the LAC is offered on a group, walk-in basis. Tutors are not available during all of our open hours.  Please check the schedules to find out when tutors are available for each subject.

How to sign up for tutoring

To receive tutoring, PCC students are auto-enrolled in Civic 3031 (Supervised Tutoring) in LancerPoint. There is no cost for this course, and there are no meetings other than the tutoring sessions themselves; also, no credits or grades are issued.  Students must also obtain their teacher's signature on a referral form for each class they receive tutoring in and submit it to the LAC.
