Math Lab Closed

Online Tutoring available through Canvas

Students who wish to participate in online tutoring through the Math Lab should register for Section 17582, and will have access to online tutoring through our Canvas Tutoring area once registered. Please read below for full instructions.

How to Access Online Math Lab via Canvas

  1. You can get on Canvas and Math Lab should be activated for you as a student in a math or stats class. Course code is 17582 and that will appear on your schedule, but not your transcripts. If you have access (that is, if you can see the Canvas Math Lab page on your Canvas list of courses, and/or you see course code 17582 on your schedule) then skip to Step 3.
  2. If you can't access Canvas, or don't see 17582 on your schedule, then go into eServices. Add course code 17582. You don't need a permission number. If there is any hold on your account that doesn't allow you to enroll, send an e-mail with your name and student ID to boydh@scc.losrios.edu.
  3. On the Canvas page, under ConferZoom, join the Math Lab daily meeting.
    Hours are:
    • Monday to Thursday, 8:00 am to 8:00 pm
    • Friday, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm
    • Saturday, 10:00 am to 4:30 pm
    • Sunday, 10:00 am to 2:00 pm

Once in the room, a tutor will be assigned to you and you'll get set up in a breakout room to have your question answered.

We not only can offer help in math, but in general if you're having trouble with Zoom for any of your courses, we can give you guidance. Topics such as uploading your work, participating in Zoom by chatting, setting up virtual backgrounds, sharing your screen, using Desmos for graphing, and more.


The Math Lab is available to all students at any skill level as a resource for tutoring support in Math and related subjects, such as Physics, Chemistry, and Statistics. Services available are tutoring and workshops.

How It Works

Come to the Math Lab and sign up at the front desk. You will be asked to fill out a tutoring referral form and sign up for the current Math Lab section of HSER-1000 (enrollment is free and will not show up on your transcript).

Check in each time you visit the Math Lab. If you need materials, such as books and calculators, you can ask for them at the front desk. Start working at a desk or computer station. When you need help with your work, raise your hand and a tutor will be with you as soon as possible.

Math Lab Lending Library

The Math Lab’s lending library includes textbooks, student solutions manuals, calculators and lecture videos for select courses. Materials can be checked out at the front desk using your student ID (Student Access Card) for use in the lab only.

What Can Tutors Help Me With?

Math Lab tutors are available on an as-needed basis while you do your coursework. When you need assistance, you can raise your hand to notify a tutor. The tutor’s goal is to help you get to a point of critical and independent thought so you can be successful working through problems on your own. At times when the lab is less busy, you may be able to get more individualized help with a tutor who can sit down with you for an extended period of time.
