The Learning Assistance Center offers tutoring for UC students at our office in 2510B French Hall West. Sessions are one-on-one with a subject-specific tutor to answer your questions. Our dedicated tutors participate in ongoing training to equip them with strategies to support extended classroom learning. Tutoring is free of charge, and students may register using the link to the right.

The LAC offers tutoring in more than 300 undergraduate courses including subjects such as math, science, languages, business, and writing. If you notice your desired course is not offered, please let us know.

Distance Learning students or those enrolled in online courses are encouraged to visit our Learning Resources. This page provides valuable resources for academic success, ideal for students who cannot access  our campus-based services. Make sure to check out our new installments of Math Minute for video tutorials in math courses. New videos are added regularly.

CRLA Certification

The Peer Tutoring program has received the Level II International Tutor Training Program Certification from the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). CRLA is "a group of student-oriented professionals active in the fields of reading, learning assistance, developmental education, tutoring, and mentoring at the college/adult level.”

The International Tutor Training Program Certification has two main purposes:

  • It provides recognition and positive reinforcement for tutors' successful work from an international organization, CRLA.
  • Sets an internationally accepted standard of skills and training for a program to certify their tutors.


Badge of CRLA Certification

During the 2013-2014 academic year, the LAC certified 15 tutors at Level I Certification and 21 tutors at Level II Certification.
