Meet our new Tutoring Coordinator!

2022 begins with the addition of our new TUTORING COORDINATOR,  LaMont Mitchell!  LaMont has been a part-time tutor at the East Chicago for a number of years.  Now full-time, he will continue to tutor in his subjects, primarily the sciences, but add the responsibilities of overseeing the day-to-day operations of the tutoring centers and help in expanding our tutoring services.  

As a starter, the Spring 2022 semester will see a special day for TEAS prep tutoring inaugurated.  This will be on Fridays under the capable hands of Lamont and fellow tutor, Jeff Johnson.  To sign up for TEAS tutoring help, please call the East Chicago phone number, or simply email LaMont at

Benefits of Tutoring

Tutoring is free to Ivy Tech students! 

Students benefit in a number of ways: getting assistance in understanding course specific problems and principles, learning study skills, and having others to relate to while coping with their studies.

The purpose of tutoring is to assist and guide students to the point at which they become independent learners.  Students who start early with tutoring and who get the support they need are likely to continue on with their academic careers.

Library website

Another valuable resource is the Ivy Tech Library and its website.  The Virtual Library has a multitude of paid subscription databases that provide credible and quality information for any subject desired. These databases are collections of magazines, journals, newspapers, and even electronic books from which articles on a given subject can be easily accessed. 

Please explore Ivy Tech Lake County website, as much has changed in the last year - new searching methods, and new databases!
