### Private Tutoring

We do not offer private tutoring by appointment, and cannot easily predict how busy
the lab will be at any given time. **Please keep in mind that the labs are usually very busy before tests.** If you would like to arrange a private tutoring session, you are responsible for making
an appointment with a tutor and negotiating tutoring rates. We maintain a list of
tutors in the lab who are also interested in tutoring on a private basis. Copies are
available in IDC 102, or as requested. Please email MathLta@sbcc.edu for a current copy of the list.
