The LRC's CRLA certification process sets an internationally accepted standard of tutor training for the purpose of providing tutors with skills, recognition, and positive reinforcement for successful work. The LRC tutoring services are free to all Cal Poly Pomona undergraduate and graduate students. Appointment, online, and drop-in tutoring are available beginning Week 2 of the semester through Finals Week.
