Academic Year Services
After School Tutoring
Tutors are available to meet with you closer to home if you:
- live far from campus and cannot get there on time
- are in an after school activity that prevents you from coming to tutorials during regular hours
- are at a high school not served by on-campus tutoring.
Tutors will meet students for tutoring appointments in public places where studying/tutoring can be effective. To request a regular tutoring appointment in your community contact Jamie Johnson at (562) 985-7557. A parent conference may be required prior to making arrangements.
After School Tutorial Sessions
Student success is our priority. This year, we are requiring all new students and students who have had low grades in the past to attend mandatory tutoring during the week—this is in addition to Saturday Tutorials. We have expanded our tutorial options to make them accessible to students from all of our high schools. Please call to confirm your attendance at one of the following locations so we can update you on any changes.
Schedule and location for 2016-2017 tutoring coming soon!
