Extended Learning Center
"Where Students Come to Succeed!"
The mission of Lone Star College-Tomball Extended Learning Center (ELC) is to help students become independent learners by providing tutoring and other academic support services. We believe that all learners have the right to develop to their highest potential. Resource materials and computer-based instruction are available to help students with their academic goals.
The Extended Leaning Center is here to help you succeed. We offer expert tutoring in a variety of subjects and a variety of modes. All tutoring is FREE to Lone Star College students.
The ELC is on the second floor of the Lone Star College-Tomball Community Library.
