General Information

Tutorial video

A tutor can mean the difference between a passing and a non-passing grade in a subject that is difficult for you. The service is free. We are located around the side of the Library closest to the LA/SS building. We can be reached at 408-741-2038 if you have any questions (not answered by our website).

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.

Canvas help now available. Ask any peer tutor if you need help navigating through your course(s).

Spring 2018 Hours

Monday – Thursday: 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM

Friday 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM


Enroll in Tutoring

  • Come in to the Tutorial/Success Center and complete a registration form.
  • Go to the Portal and enroll in the zero-unit, zero-cost lab LRSV 110 (instructions available on registration form).
  • Check the schedule for available drop–in times; check back regularly, as the schedule changes frequently.
  • If needed, inquire about scheduling individual or group appointments, available on a limited basis.

Read the Student Notification

When you come in to sign up for tutoring services we will automatically enroll you in the zero unit tutoring course, Learning Services 110 (LRSV 110). There is no charge.

You must be enrolled in the class for which you receive tutoring. We verify the following: whether or not the class is current, the student is enrolled, and the course is taken at West Valley, not Mission. If any of the above criteria are not verifiable, tutoring may be suspended or denied. 

We will assist you in improving your skills, gaining confidence in your abilities, and getting your questions answered. Our goal for you is to become empowered in your own abilities and to strengthen them as you work with others.

You must attend all of your classes. A tutor will not read the textbook for you, nor do your homework for you. Remember that your instructor is the final authority, and that the tutors are not instructors.

Register early and get help frequently. Studies show that students who get regular assistance throughout the semester–rather than at the last minute–can significantly improve their grades.

Individual weekly appointments are available on a limited basis and for students who qualify for additional accommodations (through DESP, EOP&S, and TRIO). If you have an appointment, you must be on time! If you arrive more than 15 minutes late, it can count as a "NO-SHOW" (un-excused absence); after two no–shows, your weekly appointment may be cancelled. Please call 408.741.2038 at least 24 hours ahead if you cannot make it to your appointment.

Study Groups are an excellent way to improve comprehension of the class materials, test one's knowledge, and effectively collaborate with classmates. If at least three students from a class need assistance, we can work with you to schedule a weekly appointment. Once your group is formed and you have mutually available times in mind, please contact Jen Wagner at 408-741-2615 or jennifer.wagner@westvalley.edu to inquire about scheduling an appointment. 

Please come prepared for your tutoring session. Adequate preparation includes regular class attendance and bringing your textbook (along with handouts and questions) to the tutoring session.

We strive to meet as many students' needs as possible. Oftentimes, this means that the center will be busy. We ask that you tolerate the needs of the students around you, including some "white noise" of students and tutors working together. If you have a complaint, please speak to Jen Wagner.

Become a Tutor

Do you like helping others in a meaningful way? Can you communicate effectively? If your GPA is 3.0 or above and you have a B or better in the subject you wish to tutor, we invite you to apply.

What will you get out of it?

  • Help others.
  • Earn money.
  • Enhance your knowledge of the subject. (The jury is still out on whether or not tutees learn more than tutors during a tutoring session.)
  • Develop and improve your communication skills.
  • Learn how to become a more organized student.
  • Increase your confidence by facing and working through challenges.
  • Gain experience in a leadership role.
  • Develop your resume and on–the–job skills, applicable in most modern work environments.
  • Work on campus, close to classes.

How do I become a tutor?

  • Come in to the Tutorial/Success Center and ask for information about becoming a tutor.
  • Register for Interdisciplinary Studies (ISTU 40), the 1/2-unit, hybrid-format Tutor Training course--successful completion of ISTU 40 is a prerequisite for the job: students may only apply after this requirement has been met.
  • After successfulLY completinG ISTU 40, complete a Peer Tutor Application, including the required Faculty Recommendation Form(s).
  • Submit a completed application and faculty recommendation(s) in the subject(s) you want to tutor to Jen Wagner.
  • After applying, you may be asked to interview; if not, you may follow–up with Jen Wagner, and ask why an interview was not granted.
  • If hired, you will need to complete an employment packet with the West Valley College Personnel office.

We really need good tutors and will help you through the process. Give Jen a call at 408–741–2615, or email Jen Wagner with any questions you have about being a tutor.

Final Exam Review Sessions

Will be scheduled for classes with 3+ students enrolled in tutoring AND an available tutor to run the session(s). The schedule is created around week 14, is posted online and on flyers in the Center and around campus. If you have any questions about these sessions or want to request one, please speak with the Success Center Coordinator, Jen Wagner, or email her at jennifer.wagner@westvalley.edu.

These sessions are intended to help students review for the exam, clarify confusing concepts, and feel empowered to do their best. They are  NOT  intended to catch-up students who fell too far behind or who didn't study prior to the session.  Please study prior to the session, write down specific questions you have beforehand, and bring your study materials with you.

Online & Off–Site Tutoring

Online Tutoring

Free online tutoring via NetTutor – In order to access this free, outsourced, online service, please click on the link marked "NetTutor 24/7" on the left column menu of your Canvas course shell. If your instructor has not activated his/her course in Canvas, please request it so this feature (only) will be enabled for your class.

Off–Site Tutoring

If you're not a current West Valley College student, or if you need private, face-to-face tutoring outside of the Tutorial Center, we recommended the following sources, not affiliated with WVC:

  • Tutree.com: an online resource (and app) that allows you to connect with tutors near you who have been vetted by Tutree; payment can also be made securely through their site and/or app.
  • "The 10 Best Tutoring Centers in Saratoga" is an online listing of Yelp's top-rated tutorial centers close to West Valley. Many focus on K-12 education, but some may offer higher-level help as well.
  • Craigslist: many private tutors advertise via Craigslist, but you need to search for and vet them yourself. It's a good resource to see who's available, their level of expertise (from high school students to PhDs), and the going hourly rate for private tutors in the Bay Area. Of course, as with any Craigslist ad, please meet in a public place and be safe.

NOTE: The Success/Tutorial Center does NOT hire out our tutors for private, off-site tutoring. Additionally, we will NOT provide a tutor's private contact information to those who request it. We highly value the safety and privacy of our staff, and thank you for understanding.
