Sharpen your academic skills at CLC tutoring centers! CLC offers comprehensive tutoring to help you achieve academic success. Tutoring can improve academic performance, build confidence and enhance your learning. Over 2,500 students utilize tutoring services each semester. The centers serve all enrolled students, including those in GED and Adult Education ESL programs.

The Tutoring Center houses the Math Center and the Writing Center. Professional tutors are available to assist students with homework and to prepare for tests. The Math Center can help with all levels of math, science, accounting and pretty much any course that involves working with numbers. The Writing Center can assist with writing assignments in any class. Our free tutoring services are available at all three campuses.

What We Tutor

CLC offers tutoring in core subject areas including:

  • Accounting
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Computer Skills
  • Languages
  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Writing

We actively support writing across the curriculum. That means that help is available not only for all levels of English courses, but also in relation to any course that has a writing component, including communications, humanities, political science, psychology, and sociology.

Not all subjects are tutored during each of the hours that we are open. View our tutoring schedules for details (PDF).

How Much Does Tutoring Cost?

Part of the student comprehensive fee supports tutoring at CLC. There are no additional charges. Beyond the fee, it costs you nothing to get quality tutoring, no matter how often you visit.

Getting Started

It's easy to get tutoring help at CLC: Simply drop in to a tutoring center! You don't need to make an appointment for tutoring in math, science, or accounting. We help on a first come, first served basis. We strongly encourage you to make an appointment for tutoring in writing and computer skills but drop-ins are also welcome. Contact your preferred tutoring center to arrange a time.

Three Campuses, ONE College

No matter where you take classes, the welcome mat is out at all of our tutoring centers. Visit the center most convenient to you in terms of location, hours of operation, or tutor availability. Because Grayslake offers more specialized and upper level courses than either Southlake or Lakeshore, tutors for these courses are based mostly at the main campus.

Center Resources

You're welcome to use CLC tutoring centers for independent and small group study. Laptops or desktop computers are available for conducting research, completing course work on line, and preparing assignments. If you're working on a writing project, resources include dictionaries, guides, and popular reference works. At Lakeshore campus, you'll find a small selection of fiction and nonfiction works that you're welcome to borrow.
