Our Peer Tutors

Our peer tutors are upper-class students who have demonstrated aptitude and success in math and science. Each peer tutor completes a training certified by the College Reading and Learning Association. 

If you are struggling with a specific subject, peer tutors can access a list of completed coursework and a corresponding schedule of other peer tutors to assist you. Although we only guarantee services in some of the introductory Math, Chemistry and Physics, many of our tutors are able to help with more advanced levels or other subjects. Check with our tutors or feel free to email us at tutoring@osu.edu for specific subject availability by tutor.

It is reasonable to expect that tutors will help with the following:

  • Answer questions
  • Review concepts that may have been confusing in class
  • Let you practice your own work
  • Let you complete your own homework
  • Provide you with strategies that will help you work independently

Tutors will NOT provide you with answers or do homework for you.

Cancellation and No Show Policy

If you need to cancel your appointment, please do so using Oncourse with as much notice as possible. If you do not show for your appointment within the first 30 minutes and have not cancelled ahead of time, we will document the situation and reserve the right to decline future tutoring appointments with you after 3 missed appointments.

If you have any questions about our services, please email us at tutoring@osu.edu
