Tutors Available to Help Students

The Davis Center offers tutoring in various subjects. Our tutors have a deep understanding of the subject and are recommended by their instructors, whose class they passed with good grades.

Tutors help students with projects, offer exam study skills or help revisit a concept that is still confusing. Most of our tutoring does not require an appointment; instead they are conducted on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Currently the Davis Center offers tutoring in English, Math, Statistics, Spanish and Economics. For a complete schedule, please visit http://www.scc.losrios.edu/daviscenter/student-services/
