Tutoring is available to all OCU students through the Career Services Department in the Student Life Center. The Career Services Department has developed a Peer Mentoring Program that services the many needs of the OCU body. Tutoring is one of these needs. Career Services employs a variety of upper classmen from a range of majors in order to be able to help students with any class that they are taking.
Tutoring can be done one-on-one or in a group setting depending on the request of the student. These tutoring sessions are created with the student in mind so that each session is targeted to his/her particular needs. Students can utilize the services of the Peer Mentors to his/her chosen extent as well. Students have the option of choosing a larger extent like one hour sessions three times a week or a smaller extent like dropping off a paper to be proofread a couple of times a semester.
Career Services offers other tutoring resources beyond the in-house tutoring. The Peer Mentors manage a Moodle page that is loaded with resources for students. Tutoring through Career Services is free and available during office hours in SLC Room 202. Register with a Career Services Advisor to start your tutoring today.
