Welcome to the tutoring unit of Learning Assistance Programs (LAP)! We are pleased to offer free academic peer tutoring in a variety of courses.

Students can make appointments via the WCOnline system. After registering for an account and logging in, students should click the advising drop-down and move to the tutoring schedule. Times that appear to be white indicate that the tutor is available. Students also have the capability of limiting the schedule to specific classes by using the "limit to" feature.

Tutoring Tips

Students should come to the Tutoring Center prepared to become active, independent learners. The following tips will help you, the student, reach your goal of academic success:

  • Bring all applicable class materials (textbooks, notes, handouts, calculators, etc.)
  • Know your student number (0XXXXXX).
  • Turn off your cell phone before your tutoring session begins.
  • Plan ahead—the tutor will be able to assist you more appropriately if you do not wait until the day of or day before the test or deadline.
  • Come to your tutoring session prepared to work on something specific.
  • Ask for help.  Don’t be shy; tutors are here to assist you.
  • Be sure to eat before you come to the Tutoring Center.
  • Get adequate sleep the night before.
  • Think positively!
  • Make sure you’ve made an attempt to complete your work yourself, and that you have at least a basic understanding of what you need help with.  The tutor’s job is to prepare you to do your work independently, not to do your work for you.
