Looking for Tutoring? Not sure where to start? Check out LAP's TNA Blitz to complete this initial step needed for weekly tutoring. 

Getting your assessment done is quick and allows you to easily sign up for future tutoring sessions.

During their Tutoring Needs Assessment (TNA) appointment, students connect with a staff member to share a more thorough picture of their needs in the specific course, think and talk through how they plan to be successful in the course, and share how tutoring would be most helpful for them. 

About Learning Assistance Programs

LAP offers tutoring, facilitated study groups, learning strategy workshops, individual consultations, and drop-in assistance for a variety of Math, Language, Science, and Nursing courses. By providing students access to resources that support their development as learners and their overall well-being, LAP increases student retention and equips students with the tools they need to thrive as professionals in the future. 

Their combination of services is delivered by professional staff and peer tutors so students can choose which combination of resources meets their unique needs.  As a nationally certified program through the College Reading and Learning Association, peer tutors engage in required ongoing professional development opportunities to ensure that they are well-positioned to offer strategic and thorough support for their peers in specific courses.  Feedback at the end of each quarter often reflects a high level of student satisfaction with the effectiveness of this learning environment.
