Experiencing difficulty in class? Want to learn more about how to learn? Need assistance to get through a tough exam or adjust to being back in school?
Learning Assistance is available free of charge to all Lake Michigan College students in courses at LMC campuses. To request tutoring services, fill out, save and email the Learning Assistance Center Request Form to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need help for writing, please contact the Writing Center.
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.
To find out more about the services available to you, and hear current semester hours, call (269) 927-1000 ext. 8750 or e-mail us.
Online Tutoring Services
If you have a single, course-related question, online assistance is available by email. You are limited to one question, and if it is a complex topic, you may be asked to come in to speak with a learning assistant in person.
