Tutoring Services - Lake County

Seeing a Tutor

For appointments, please call or email in advance for best results.  Appointments can now be set up via our new tutoring software app:  TracCloud, coming this Fall 2022!  See box in the middle.  You can set up appointments from home by going to your MyIvy, and clicking on the QuickLink:  Campus Tutoring Services.  NOTE: walk-ins/drop-ins are welcome if there is no scheduled appointments by other students

A session can be up to an hour as needed. Occasionally longer is possible if time allows. 

It is the student’s responsibility to make any appointments to see a tutor, though faculty can and do play an important role in referring students early on to the campus tutoring center. 

Continuous appointments throughout the semester are encouraged for best results.

Please let us know how we can help you!


Scheduling Appointment using TracCloud

Students can now connect with their local campus tutoring centers and SCHEDULE tutoring appointments via the new QuickLink called:  Campus Tutoring Services. You'll want to log into your MyIvy using your Ivy Tech email and password. Hint:  You can also make this QuickLink a FAVORITE (red heart), so you can always get to this QuickLink easily. See image below:

The system will ask you to list your local campus tutoring center and then to choose a subject by selecting the course you'd like tutoring for, AND list the reason needing assistance (such as Writing and Reading Assistance, or Math and Science Assistance, or Technology Assistance). See next image:

The Tutoring Sessions

Tutoring is often done on a one-on-one basis in the tutoring centers.  Sometimes they can be in a small group setting in a large room if spaced out. Tutoring can also be done by Zoom, or by phone, or email if your tutoring needs can only be addressed that way.   

Tutors can help with working on similar homework problems but not the actual problems.  They also assist with connecting you to Knowledge-Assessment tests as needed.  See box below.                                                     

Knowledge Assessment help

Our tutors can assist with KA (Knowledge Assistance) test set-up so you can be placed within the correct level and type of Math or English course.  Often an advisor will need a new student, or a current student preparing for the next level of courses, to take the test.                                            

Need to Reach the Virtual Front Desk?

You can connect with the Virtual Front Desk for other student services, such as to connect with an advisor, meet with Financial Aid, or register for classes.  Hours will vary.
