Tutorial Services

The goal of tutorial services in the LLRC is to support students in becoming independent lifelong learners by providing services that will improve and strengthen academic performance and skills.

Tutorial services in the LLRC are available for free to all enrolled Oxnard College students . Writing and Reading tutors are available to support students with any writing or reading assignment for any class at any stage in the process from planning to the final draft. We help students improve skills such as brainstorming, understanding the assignment, writing thesis statements, organizing ideas, reading comprehension, study skills, using accurate citations, improving sentence structure and grammar skills. Additionally, the tutors help with other types of writing including personal statements for university applications, scholarship essays, resumes, and cover letters.

Course-specific tutoring is also available in most subjects including math, science, social sciences, humanities and others. Tutoring is provided by trained peer tutors and university graduates who have outstanding academic performance in their respective subject areas. The Writing, Reading, and Tutoring Center (WRTC) and STEM peer and provisional tutors provide a friendly and supportive atmosphere for all students.

Online tutoring is also available. Students have the option of meeting Oxnard College Tutors online, as well as utilizing the online tutoring program Net Tutor.
