    Click here for the current LRC Schedule

    The Learning Resources Center (LRC) is a tutoring service created for Lusher Middle and High Schools with the goal of improving student achievement and boosting test scores. The LRC provides a valuable educational resource by offering free tutoring sessions in every major subject area.

    The LRC is housed in the 3rd floor library on the Freret campus. Tulane University provides the tutors who join forces with Lusher faculty and students to create an interactive learning experience with one-on-one assistance and instruction. View the tutor schedule above to see which subjects are supported on which days.

    The LRC opens in the library immediately after school on Mondays/Tuesdays/Thursdays from 3:35-5PM and Wednesdays from 2:35-4PM. (On some Wednesdays, faculty meetings in the library may require the LRC to move to a classroom. Signs will be posted on such days). The LRC is closed on Fridays. Please note that the LRC is a separate program from Middle School Aftercare, which also shares the library space.

    No advance sign up is required. Students may simply show up! When feasible, it is recommended that students plan ahead by viewing the tutor schedule above and trying to show up on a day when multiple tutors are available for the subject in which help is needed. Tutors are paired with students on a first-come-first-served basis.
