Pasadena City College, Home of the PCC Lancers

Learning Assistance Center



The LAC has two tutoring programs: General Education (Transfer) and Career and Technical Education. To determine which program is most appropriate for you, check this list of Career and Technical Education programs; in order to qualify for this type of tutoring, you must be enrolled in a course from one of these CTE programs. 

NOTE:  Tutoring in the LAC is generally offered on a walk-in basis and is first-come, first-served.. Tutors are not available during all of our open hours.  Please check the schedules below to see when tutors are available for each subject. Students must be currently enrolled at PCC in the course for which they are seeking tutoring (except in the case of English; PCC students may review papers they have written for other PCC courses with one of our English tutors).

Students receiving tutoring must respect our code of conduct.  Please read The Tutee's Role in Tutoring


How to sign up for tutoring

To receive tutoring, PCC students simply need to come to the front desk in D-300 and fill out a brief form (see below). Students will automatically be enrolled in Civic 3031 (Supervised Tutoring) in LancerPoint by scanning in and out of the station at the front desk with their Lancer Cards.. There is no cost, and there are no meetings beyond the tutoring sessions themselves; no credits or grades are issued, and this course will not show on transcripts.  Students must obtain their teacher's signature on a referral form for each class they receive tutoring in and submit it at the front desk of the LAC. .
