Peer Tutoring

Tutoring is a free service available to all enrolled Oakland University students who are currently taking the course at Oakland University. Drop-In and individual appointment tutoring is available for most 0000-2999 level courses and also a number of upper level undergraduate classes.

Why should I go to tutoring?
  • All students can benefit from tutoring.
  • It is a good practice to make tutoring part of your weekly study routine, especially in your most challenging courses - come see us consistently.
  • Your college courses are supposed to push you out of your comfort zone. But you don’t have to experience them on your own. We all need support and we're here to provide you that help. 
  • Our tutors are students just like you - they have taken the same classes and faced the same challenges and they are eager to share their tips with you. 
How do I find a tutor?
Make the most of your tutoring session
  • It is best to come to tutoring consistently as opposed to the day before the test.
  • Tutors do not replace class attendance; they address specific questions. Class attendance is always a must. 
  • Have your class materials (textbooks, syllabus, assignments, previous tests, etc.) ready for your tutoring session.  
  • Plan ahead to ensure tutor availability, especially during peak times like midterms and before tests.
  • Please be punctual for you appointment. Two no-show appointments will result in loss of tutoring services for thirty days.
