Academic Year Services

After School Tutoring

Tutors are available to meet with you closer to home if you:
  • live far from campus and cannot get there on time
  • are in an after school activity that prevents you from coming to tutorials during regular hours
  • are at a high school not served by on-campus tutoring.

Tutors will meet students for tutoring appointments in public places where studying/tutoring can be effective. To request a regular tutoring appointment in your community contact Jamie Johnson at (562) 985-7557. A parent conference may be required prior to making arrangements.

After School Tutorial Sessions

Student success is our priority. This year, we are requiring all new students and students who have had low grades in the past to attend mandatory tutoring during the week—this is in addition to Saturday Tutorials.
