Online Tutoring and Specialized Tutoring

NetTutor

Los Angeles Valley College is happy to offer its students free 24/7 English tutoring through NetTutor services. NetTutor also provides online tutoring through a variety of other subjects such as, but not limited to, Astronomy, Biology, Math, and Nursing. There is a 5 hour limit to NetTutor per semester (which may change at LAVC’s discretion), and you must be enrolled in a class that utilizes CANVAS in order to access NetTutor services. If your course is not online, it is up to the professor to have a CANVAS component, and course offerings are at NetTutor’s discretion (not Los Angeles Valley College).
