Tutoring Center

In-Person Services

The Tutoring Centers provide FREE tutoring for all registered Yakima Valley College students.

All Yakima Valley College students qualify for free tutoring services. We offer tutors for most courses on campus including Accounting, Business, Biology, Chemistry, Math, Spanish, and other courses.

Please note that the availability of our tutored courses is subject to change quarterly, depending on demand. We continuously assess and adjust our offerings to best meet the needs and interests of our students.

Tutors must have completed the course(s) they would like to tutor with a “B+” or above grade. An instructor’s recommendation is required for any students interested in tutoring a math course.

Please fill out our application to be contacted by our team when a position becomes available.

eTutoring services

Online tutors are available to help currently enrolled Yakima Valley College students with various subjects, including writing, physics, chemistry, world languages, biology, math, and many more.

There are three ways students can use eTutoring:

a synchronous tutoring session via Zoom. Students meet with the tutor on a first-come-first-served basis. After logging in, students can view tutor schedules by subject area.

An asynchronous option where students can post a question and a tutor will respond, generally within 24-48 hours. This works best for quick questions that do not require an extended conversation.

An asynchronous option where students can upload a draft of their paper, along with specific questions and concerns. A tutor will provide written feedback (a summary letter and comments embedded in the draft), usually within 24-48 hours.

Links to relevant resources are also provided. The Live Writing Lab is a separate service from the YVC Writing Center
