Online and Phone Tutoring from the LRC

The LRC offers online and phone tutoring for a limited number of subjects. Our online tutoring is generally conducted over SKYPE, a free online communication tool that uses video, voice or text chat.

In Spring 2017, online or phone tutoring is available from the LRC for these subjects:

  • ICS 111, 211, 212 (Note: for these subjects, the tutor uses a website called Kobra. She'll email you  a link to the Kobra site before the session.)
  • Linguistics 102

To make a Skype or phone appointment through an LRC staff member
