What Is Tutoring?
Tutoring is one person helping another person develop the skills necessary to become an independent learner.
Why Should I Get A Tutor?
Tutoring can provide you with an opportunity to gain a more individualized learning experience. Working with a student or professional tutor can help you to improve your academic performance within a subject area, and learn valuable study skills that can help you in all of your classes.
What Are My Tutoring Options?
Student and professional tutors work with students individually or in small groups. All Ohio University Southern students are eligible for up to two hours of tutoring per week, at no cost. In addition, Drop-In Tutoring is available for OUS students during specified hours.
Who Are The Ohio University Southern Tutors?
OUS tutors are students that have achieved a minimum of a 3.0 cumulative grade point average, and have earned at least a “B” in the subjects they are tutoring. Tutors receive training and have the primary goal of helping students achieve academic independence. The Learning and Assessment Center also employs some professional tutors to work with students.
For Which Classes Are Tutors Available?
The majority of tutoring is provided for 100 and 200 level courses. Upper level students can usually make arrangements with their instructors for the help they need. Tutor availability is not guaranteed for any class, however every effort will be made to ensure that a student is paired with a tutor upon request.
How Do I Request A Tutor?
To request a tutor, come to The Learning and Assessment Center (or the main office at the Proctorville campus) and complete a Tutor Request card. After receiving your completed card, The Learning and Assessment Center staff will give your contact information to a qualified tutor who will contact you personally to set up an initial tutoring session.
