Course & Language Tutoring

Tutoring and other forms of academic support are meant to supplement, not replace, course instruction. Students who attend class regularly, complete their assignments, and meet with faculty during office hours in addition to using the ARC resources will outperform their peers. Course tutoring happens in a group format led by a faculty-recommended peer tutor with some expertise in the subject. Current LMU students are welcome to participate in tutoring.

The ARC is currently offering course tutoring for the following courses/subjects: 

  • Accounting
  • Anatomy & Physiology
  • Applied Information Management Systems 
  • Dance Kinesiology
  • Finance 
  • General Chemistry & Organic Chemistry 
  • Math 
  • Philosophy
  • PSYC 2001 & PSYC 2003
  • Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, & Spanish

Want support for a class that isn't listed above? The ARC can help you form a study group

For the health and safety of students, all course tutoring will take place via Zoom until further notice. Students must schedule an appointment to meet with a tutor.
