Online tutoring through NetTutor is available 24 hours per day (for many subjects). This is an excellent option for students who are unable to attend tutoring in person or online during the college's hours of operation. Also, NetTutor provides support for paper drop-off and question drop-off.

How to Use NetTutor

You may access NetTutor directly from the student tutoring page (in Canvas) once you have joined the course. You can join the course by clicking the "Add LAC to your Canvas" button at the top of this page.
