Learning Assistance Center
The Learning Assistance Center (LAC), located in HSS 348, provides tutorial support from 9-4 Monday-Thursday, and 9-12 on Fridays. Tutors are available to work with you one-on-one and in small groups, and for both weekly and drop-in sessions, depending on need and scheduling. Tutoring is available in most subjects.
At the LAC, the focus is on assisting you in completing assignments while strengthening your academic skills. Tutors new to the LAC take a 3 unit class where they learn best practices; returning tutors meet in small groups to discuss ways to improve their tutoring strategies. The tutoring staff is supported by LAC faculty, all of whom are currently teaching or have taught at San Francisco State and other universities.
At the LAC, you will meet tutors who care about what and how you learn, with the goal of helping you succeed at the university.
