Faculty Resources

Library & Learning Services provides research help, tutoring, and collections in one convenient location. Services include personalized research and tutoring support; student-centered study and collaborative learning spaces; and access to course-related books, databases, media, and more. Students can borrow textbooks through the quarterly lending program or on reserve for in-library use. Visit our library website homepage for hours of operation, to search for books and articles, and to schedule a research appointment.




Math tutors are available most library hours for classes such as Algebra, Statistics, and Calculus. We offer small-group math tutoring in person and on Cranium Cafe.

Writing tutors are available most library hours to provide focused feedback on draft papers and assignments. We offer one-on-one writing tutoring in person or by appointment on Cranium Cafe. You can also email your draft paper and prompt to library@ltcc.edu to get feedback from a writing tutor. Allow up to 24 hours (Sunday-Friday) for feedback.

Subject tutors such as Biology, A&P, and Sign Language are scheduled around classes. Core English and Math classes may also have embedded tutors working closely with instructors to support students. Subject and embedded hours vary, see tutor office hours on Cranium Cafe.

Free online tutoring is also available in Canvas via NetTutor. All NetTutors have at least a bachelors in their subject area. Math, English/Writing, and ESL tutors are available 24/7. Plus, subject tutors in over a dozen areas (including Anatomy & Physiology, Statistics, Accounting, History, Matemáticas en Español) are available most days of the week.
