Math Tutoring

Ventura College students enrolled in math courses have several resource options for tutorial services including: the Math Center, Tutoring Center, and online tutoring.  VC students are free to take advantage of any one or all of these options.  For more information contact Erika Hurtado, Tutorial Specialist, at 805-289-6185.

Ventura College tutors are students at Ventura College or other nearby colleges and universities, have successfully completed the course tutored with an "A" grade, and have been recommended by two instructors.  Tutors also must successfully complete the tutor training course and any required assessments.   

Math Center

The Math Center, located in SCI-223, is open Monday-Thursday, 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.  The center is a small cozy environment where students may drop-in at any time to consult with a tutor or volunteer math faculty member.

Tutoring Center

Se Habla Español

The Tutoring Center, located in LRC-160, is open Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-7 p.m., Friday & Saturday 9 a.m.-1 p.m.  The Tutoring Center provides students with math drop-in tutoring centered at various course levels throughout the day, provides a tutor for students in a class who wish to form regular meeting group study sessions, and provides individual tutoring for students in the EAC and EOPS programs.  The Tutoring Center will also provide individual tutoring for students who are at an academically critical stage in a course, however, this must be pre-approved by the Tutorial Specialist-due to financial constraints.
