Tutoring and Learning Center

The Tutoring and Learning Center (formerly the Learning Skills & Tutoring Center) is a free resource that offers academic support to students enrolled in a particular SCC class. Students can meet with a tutor to talk about their assignment, exam, study skills, or anything else related to class.

We offer:

  • 25- and 55-minute sessions
  • One-on-one, small group, and weekly large group sessions
  • On-campus and online sessions
  • Workshops and study skills sheets
  • Online tutoring support

Want more time with a tutor? Tutors are available on a drop-in basis when they do not have scheduled appointments.

Check out drop-in tutoring in Penji or open the Penji app:

  1. Make sure you are in the SCC|LRC Tutoring - TLC community
  2. Choose "Available drop-in tutoring", class, and location
