The Learning Assistance Center offers you help with homework, test preparation, studying and test strategies. Our Learning Assistants are certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA).
Learning assistance is provided primarily in Zoom group and walk-in formats during COVID-19 limitations. Please email us for more information. 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
All of our tutoring services are currently available online as a result of COVID-19. In addition to meeting with our tutors directly via scheduled Zoom meetings, you also have two other methods to find assistance.
- Our tutors have drop-in hours scheduled as shown in the Tutoring Schedule. These rooms are available via Zoom, and the individual tutor's current meeting IDs are available.
- Many instructors have added a link to NetTutor to their Canvas course pages to provide you with access to professional tutors–in many cases with 24/7 availability. These are available FREE to all students through LMC's partnership with NetTutor. If you do not see the link in your Canvas course, ask your instructor to enable it for you.
If you would like more information about any of these services, contact us at email@example.com
