Lone Star College, in partnership with Brainfuse/TutorMatch, offers all enrolled students online tutoring services in a variety of subjects. Students have two options for online appointments:

  • Primary Option | LSC Tutor: Students can have unlimited tutoring sessions each semester with an LSC Tutor at no extra cost. Appointments are limited to subject and tutor availability; view our service hours for details. Students can schedule appointments through Brainfuse/TutorMatch; click on the Appointment Details tab to see more.
  • Secondary Option | Brainfuse Tutor via Live Help: As a secondary option, students also have access to 90 minutes of free tutoring per academic year with Brainfuse Tutors. Appointments can be scheduled 24/7 through Brainfuse/LiveHelp. (Note: If a student wishes to use more than 90 minutes of tutoring with Brainfuse, they will need to pay for further tutoring.) 

All online tutoring is by appointment only.

If you have any questions, please contact MC-Tutoring@lonestar.edu.
