Learning Center

Beginning in February, CSM's peer tutors once again will be available in-person at the Learning Center to provide tutoring support. The Learning Center offers CSM students free tutoring in a variety of subjects. This includes both individual and small-group tutorial sessions, led by students like you! Tutoring is available on drop-in basis and you can check for subjects and availability and join their Zoom sessions through the LCTR 698 Canvas shell. If you are not currently registered for LCTR 698 and you would like to access drop-in tutoring, sign into WebSMART and enroll in LCTR 698, CRN 43805. That will give you access to the Canvas shell which holds the schedules and zoom links for tutors. It is a zero unit, free course that provides access to on-line tutoring.
