Learning Assistance is available free of charge to all Lake Michigan College students in courses at LMC campuses. To request tutoring services, fill out and submit the Learning Assistance Center Request Form.

The Learning Assistance Center offers you help with homework, test preparation, studying and test strategies, and writing consultation. Our Learning Assistants are certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). 

Learning assistance is provided primarily in group and walk-in formats. See your campus for schedules and locations. We have learning assistants available for most classes offered, and we will make every effort to locate a tutor for your courses if one is not already on staff.
