About the Tutorial Center

Soike learning AlgebraTutorial Center Basics

Free tutoring is available in both Drop In and indvidual sessions in the Santa Maria ARC and at the Lompoc Valley Center library, More detailed information about the Tutorial Center can be found at

Who the Tutors Are

Trained peer tutors, and at times, professional staff, are available to tutor specific subject areas and assist students in developing effective learning strategies.

 What is Drop In Tutoring?

Tutors are available at scheduled times available for students who "Drop In" for tutoring. At Drop In tutoring, there may be more than one student who needs tutoring at a time. The tutor then helps the group.

 How Can I become a Tutor?

To qualify, tutors are recommended by AHC instructors. Prospective tutors must be enrolled in at least 6 units of AHC credit classes.


Guide to an Effective Tutoring Experience

Did you know that students who participate in 10 hours of tutoring get better grades? A few tips:

 Check the Schedule

            Not all subjects are covered at all times.  Check the    

            schedule linked here for Santa Maria or for Lompoc Valley Center.

Come Prepared

            Attend class.  Take notes.  Read the textbook.  Try the assignments. 

            Come with questions.  Be prepared to work with the tutor.

Appreciate Peer Tutoring

            Tutors are students like you.  While they are trained and knowledgeable,

            they don’t know everything. They do not evaluate your work.  They do

            not guarantee grades. They will, however, provide appropriate academic

            assistance and a unique perspective.

Understand Drop-In Tutoring

           AHC Tutorial offers drop-in tutoring, which means you may have to share

            a tutor at times.

Improve Your Learning

            Tutors will encourage you to work on your own after some assistance so

            that you can improve your learning and so others can receive help.

          Your feedback is important to us.  Every tutoring session is different
           and we want to know about your experience.
