Tutoring Services is a quiet environment where students can work on assignments at their own pace with a qualified and experienced tutor available to answer questions and guide them. Tutoring Services is equipped with TI-83, financial and standard calculators, various OSU course textbooks and other math reference books and handouts.
A one-on-one, 50-minute tutorial is one of the primary services. During the tutorial, students meet with a trained and experienced math tutor who will assist with the student's particular math needs.The format of the tutoring session is flexible to fit the student's individual needs. Students having difficulty may want to schedule multiple appointments to ensure a tutor is available when necessary.
Courses that students commonly seek help in are linear algebra, calculus, and statistics. Our math tutors may, however, be able to help in other courses with math components. Students should call to inquire whether a tutor can help with their special math needs.
Please be aware that it is our policy not to work problems for students but rather teach students techniques for solving problems themselves.
To assist students with their courses, Tutoring Services offers a calculator checkout program where students can borrow a calculator on loan. Students who wish to obtain additional information about this program should call 918-594-8232 or stop by North Hall 103 to speak with a staff member.
