Peer Tutoring
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 stop by the LAC and talk with Cindy Ly, Tutor Coordinator, about getting a one-on-one peer tutor. This is a FREE service to our students.

Follow these Math Tips for a Successful Tutoring Session:

  • 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 by the LAC.
  • Bring specific questions and all attempted work with you to the tutoring session.

 

Please Note:
This service is to help curriculum students with concepts, not homework.
