Fall 2020 Tutor Schedule

Wednesday, Sep 23rd - Friday, December 4th

To get help from a tutor, expand the weekly schedule below and select the appropriate link. When you click on the link, you will be prompted to download Zoom and join using your computer audio, then you will be taken to an online Waiting Room. When the tutor is free, they will admit you into their tutoring session. Tutors will generally only be helping one student at a time, so you may be cycled in and out of the waiting room as the tutor rotates through all students who are attending their session.

Password for All Tutoring Sessions: 000

Note: If you are unable to connect to a lobby, the tutor may not be available that day.

LAST DAY for MLC Zoom tutoring for Fall Quarter:  Friday, December 4
