Victor Valley College has created a network of Student Success Centers — which offers free tutorials, workshops, and computer/resource access — to assist students in their academic development and success.

Online Tutoring Support

All tutoring normally conducted in the Athletics Center, Communication Center, Math Success Center, Tutoring and Academic Support Center, Veteran’s Resource Center, and the Writing Center can now be accessed in Canvas through the Tutoring and Academic Support tab.

We are updating and creating videos like this one about accessing Canvas for all Centers: Achievement Center, ATC Mall, Basic Skills, Communication Center and ESL Lab, Math Success Center, Tutoring and Academic Support Center, and Writing Center.
