Tutoring Program
Students helping students achieve academic success


The LRC's tutoring program provides course specific academic support for students, in 1:1 or 2:1 settings, and addresses targeted questions and comprehension challenges. We offer tutoring for a wide range of classes including all of the introductory STEM courses. Tutoring sessions are 60 minutes and all of our tutors are students who have previously excelled in the courses they tutor. Students are allowed to make a maximum of two appointments each day.

Having trouble getting a tutoring appointment? The LRC has day-of appointments - please call us at 413-545-5334 to ask about them. We call day-of students by phone. Please leave us with a telephone number.
