Tutoring at OMSA is extremely helpful in the transition from high school to college and offers much more than what students have come to expect of tutoring encountered during their K-12 experience. It supplements the material gained from textbooks and lectures, and is not a remedial service. College tutoring offers an interactive way of helping students review, synthesize and process material in a one-on-one or group study session.
Many students utilize tutoring to achieve better grades than they would have by studying on their own. We provide tutoring primarily for the 100-level, high-risk courses that most freshmen are required to take, especially math, chemistry, physics and foreign languages and have tutoring for more than 50 courses. Tutors are students who have already taken the same course and received a grade of "A" or "B." Students matched with a tutor meet for at least one hour each week throughout the semester. Students can check the TutorTrac™ login page to find out what the walk-in hours are for the subject in which they are interested.
