A tutor can mean the difference between a passing and a non passing grade in a subject that is difficult for you. And the service is free. Tutors are available from 9:30 am to 6 pm, Mondays - Thursdays. Closed Fridays. We're located around the right side of the Library. Look for the blue and white sign. introductory video.

We have three tutoring options:

Drop-in Tutoring

  • During drop-in, students show up for tutoring based on our Drop-in Schedule for Math, Chemistry, Physics or Economics. Students share the tutors who are on duty with the other students in the drop-in area. You may sign up by using our Drop-in Registration Form.

Scheduled Individual Tutoring

  • Extensive drop-in coverage is available for math, chemistry, physics and economics, so no individual tutoring is offered in those subjects. However, a vast selection of other subjects are available on an individual tutoring basis, one hour per week per student (depending on the prevailing budget situation). See Jeff at Tutorial for more details.

Scheduled Group Tutoring

  • Several students attending the same class may want to form a group. This group will be eligible to have their own tutor once a week for one hour. This is the definition of a "scheduled group". Students can join several scheduled groups sessions in different subjects, if desired.

    Scheduled group subjects may include:

    All math Statistics* Physics Chemistry
    Accounting Psychology Anthropology AutoCad
    Biological Sciences Business Astronomy CIS
    Japanese Portuguese Health Tech Geography
    Fashion History Humanities German
    Chinese Physical Science Political Science Sociology
    Russian French Spanish Economics 1A/B

    * Statistics (Math 10) at WVC is a course that many students find daunting. Scheduled group tutoring could be very helpful for this subject.

 

To be eligible for tutoring, you must be currently enrolled at West Valley College in the subject in which you wish to be tutored, and your class must have started to meet. Read the student rules: Student Notification. Other tutoring centers on campus: Math Resource Center, Writing and English.
