Mathematics, Science, and Engineering
The Learning Center (TLC) offers students individual assistance with math classes. Math tutors are present during all operating hours at both the Canyon Country and Valencia Campuses. Tutors are able to help students through every aspect of their College of the Canyons math classes.
Tutoring is provided on a first-come, first-serve basis, and there are no appointments necessary. You may come to the TLC to ask math tutors for help on as few or as many of your homework problems as you want. Although tutors are required to move from one student to another in order to meet the needs of the many COC math students who come to the TLC for help, each student will be helped throughout the student’s entire stay.
Students may return as often as they like. We are an excellent and productive between class stop. We have textbooks and solutions manuals available for many of the classes and are available in limited supply for use by any COC math student while in the TLC. Statistics tutoring is available at both campuses during all open hours.
What Can You Expect?
Individual help with math skills: As long as you are enrolled in a math class at College of the Canyons, TLC math tutors will help you with homework and understanding processes and concepts from basic skills classes all the way through the more advanced classes. Help with computer programs used in Statistics and other math classes is also available.
TLC math tutors are trained to be patient, kind, and to listen. Tutors understand that every level of math can present challenges to students, and they are here to help you navigate through concepts and homework.
Many TLC math tutors have already taken the most advanced math courses COC offers and some tutors have Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. Our tutors are aware of the demands and challenges college students face and are friendly, knowledgeable, and supportive. We love to see that “Aha moment.”
TLC offers ample tutoring in Microbiology, Biology, Business Math/Accounting, Physics, Engineering, and Chemistry, during specific hours. Please check the Tutor Schedule. Would you like to take the Ick out of Physics or the mystery out of Chemistry? Come to TLC and we’ll do our best to help you put the “I” back Science.
