Learning Skills

The Learning Skills department provides free tutoring and study skills education to students. Tutors and study skills mentors are friendly Folsom Lake College students who earned high grades and have been recommended by professors. Our goals are to help students learn challenging academic material and to help students become more effective learners.

Each semester about 30 FLC faculty members collaborate with the Learning Skills Department to recruit tutors who are embedded in their classrooms and/or laboratories. Contact Sam Raskin to inquire about Embedded Tutoring.

Online Tutoring

Online tutoring is available for all FLC courses. To access online tutoring, simply open the Canvas page for your course and select the NetTutor link on the left side of the page.

Faculty Partnership

Learning Skills thrives through faculty partnerships. Faculty are welcome to recommend tutors, hold office hours in tutoring centers, provide feedback, or approach us with anything you would like.

Tutor Hiring

Tutoring is a great job. Tutors earn minimum wage while learning pedagogy, strengthening their academic and leadership skills, and making friends. Tutors experience a professional, but friendly and flexible work environment.

All tutors must have an in-discipline faculty recommendation to be hired. Become a tutor today!
