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.
