Welcome to LAVC Math Lab Online Tutoring!

Tutoring sessions are offered on a walk-in basis. No appointment is needed. 

 The central goal of the Math Lab is to provide individualized and collaborative tutorial support for students at Los Angeles Valley College.   

Math Lab Online Tutoring: One-on-One

  • Student will be placed into a private room with a tutor.
  • Tutor will engage one student at a time, participating in one session at a time.
  • During the tutoring session:
    • Student may seek any kind of help (e.g. assistance with  homework/assignments, review concepts from questions missed on quizzes/exams, ask the tutor for study skill strategy).
    • Tutor may ask student to use their notes to inhence understanding.
    • Tutor guides students to understand the process rather than to give them ready answer.
    • If the student is struggling, tutor may offer to work through a similar but different problem.
  • Sessions use audio and video upon student’s request.
  • Sessions have 15 - 20 min. limit if there is a student in a waiting line.

 

What Math Lab tutors do:

  •  Foster a welcome environment for students to study and learn
  •  Provide individual (one-on-one room) and group peer-tutoring (online meeting room)
  •  Encourage students to ask questions and engage in the learning   process
  •  Help students not only to solve problems but also understand the process of solving it 
  • Advise students on how to study for math courses, and provide tips on their own pathway to succeed in multiple math courses 

 

Note: Availability of tutors are subject to change. 

To evaluate the effectiveness of the tutoring session, the tutor may ask you to complete a very 1-minute short evaluation of the session at the end of the session.
