Confused about one of your classes? Need a little extra help? Want to take your understanding to the next level, or just need a great place to study? LAR Tutoring is free for all students taking at least one class at LBCC.
Tutoring is offered at both campuses for a variety of subjects, including math, accounting, economics, physics, geology, chemistry, biology, anatomy, physiology, philosophy, psychology, and foreign languages (including Spanish, Japanese and German) and much more! Don’t see your class subject listed? Come talk to us. We may still be able to help!
Our tutors are students who have at least a 3.0 GPA in the courses for which they tutor. Appointments are thirty minutes long, individual and group sessions are available, and drop-ins are welcome.
Ideas for help when tutoring isn’t available
