BRIEF: LACCD to provide free online tutoring

Story by Blake Williams and Felipe Gamino.

Pierce students will have a new resource to help them in their classes as the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) announced a free online tutoring program called NetTutor.

The service will begin Monday, Aug. 26, giving new and returning students the opportunity to get additional help online in math, English, statistics, English as a second language and first year experience classes, according to a news release.

NetTutor will be available at all hours of the day while also including specific live tutoring times.  Students at all nine of the LACCD schools will be able to use the program.

“This is a great service that the District is providing free to all students,” LACCD Board of Trustees President Andra Hoffman said in a news release. “The best part about NetTutor is that it’s accessible 24/7. Oftentimes, our students study or do homework late at night, so NetTutor is available on their schedule when they need a little help.”

Students will be able to access NetTutor by going to their online student portals at mycollege.laccd.edu and clicking the “online tutoring” button. There is no registration required.

“We’re making this easy and intuitive for students,” District Vice Chancellor of Educational Programs and Institutional Effectiveness Ryan Cornner said.
