The Tutors

The tutors are the heart of the LPC tutorial program. Each semester we have between 65-75 tutors serving LPC students.We continue to hire throughout the semester as the need arises. Some of our tutors volunteer their time, others are being paid. All tutors receive training to do their job by taking the Tutoring Theory and Practice classes at three different levels. The tutors take their jobs seriously; therefore, LPC students who come to tutoring, find themselves learning and their grades improving throughout the semester. Our formula for success: Trained Tutors + Independent/Active Learners + Encouraging/Positive Environment = Educational Success
