Tutoring is available face-to-face at Benton Harbor and Niles campuses. Online tutoring is available through Zoom meetings. Please email us at email@example.com for more information. Tutors are available for most classes offered, and every effort will be made to locate a tutor for courses requested if one is not already on staff.

There are three methods to access tutoring assistance.
- Tutors have Zoom hours scheduled as shown on the Zoom Tutoring Schedule. These rooms are available via Zoom, and the individual tutor's current meeting IDs are available on the Zoom schedule.
- Tutors are available for face-to-face tutoring at the Benton Harbor and Niles campuses. No appointments needed. Tutoring schedules are available for the current and following week. The face-to-face Benton Harbor Tutoring Schedule updates as tutors’ schedules change, so check the schedule before traveling to campus for tutoring.
- Click the Help link in the left-hand Canvas navigation bar to see the link to NetTutor. This link provides access to professional tutors – in many cases with 24/7 availability. These non-LMC tutors are available FREE to all students through LMC's partnership with NetTutor.
If you would like more information about any of these services, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, call (269) 927-8750 or visit Tutoring Services in room L190, located in the Library on the Benton Harbor Campus.
