Tutoring

Certified peer tutors are provided in math, physics, chemistry and more in several residence halls.

The 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, they can access a list of coursework that their peers have completed and where they are working. 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 not advertised above. Check with our tutors or feel free to email us at tutoring@osu.edu to check for specific subject availability by tutor, date, and location.  New in the 2017-2018 school year is peer tutoring in Math, Chemistry, and Physics in Mandarin, as well as English, in Morrill Tower.
