Tutoring

Certified peer tutors provide free drop-in tutoring in math, physics, chemistry and more in several residence halls.

UPDATE: Please note tutoring will not be available Sunday, March 10 – Sunday, March 17 due to Spring Break. Tutoring will resume on Monday, March 18 in all locations.

Our peer tutors are upper-class students who have demonstrated aptitude and success in math and science. There's no need to schedule an appointment; just drop-in with your questions and your class materials.

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 at each location, 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, date, and location. 

We also offer tutoring for the Math, Chemistry, and Physics subjects in Mandarin Chinese in our Morrill Tower location.

Peer Tutoring is offered Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 7 – 9 p.m. in the residence hall locations and Sunday-Thursday from 7 – 9 p.m. in Younkin Success Center.
