MATH CENTER

Peer Tutoring

Creating Confidence and Success

 

Our staff of peer math tutors offers FREE math assistance to students on a walk-in basis Monday through Thursday typically between the hours of 9:00 AM - 6:30 PM (7:30 by appointment) and Friday from Noon until 4:00 PM. NO APPOINTMENT IS NECESSARY. However, appointments may be requested for Individual Tutoring, Small Group Tutoring, Long-term Tutoring and Higher-Level Class Tutoring.


Come Prepared

Please bring textbooks and detailed copies of class notes. Computers are available to support online learning platforms. Remember, tutor assistance is to supplement and support your classroom experience, not to substitute for it!

 

Check-In

Sign in at the computer station and ask if a tutor is available for your math class. All tutors can assist with Math courses: D003, D004, D005, 1200, and 1300. Tutors are available at select times for Math courses: 1090, 1101/1102, 2301 and 2500. *Please note that not all tutors can help with every math class.

 

Tutoring Sessions

Experience the expertise of our well-prepared and friendly tutors.  Our tutors can assist with assignments and help you to understand concepts! Please note that it is against policy for tutors to assist directly with graded assignments, take-home exams and quizzes, Knowledge Checks (ALEKS), Certify (HAWKES), etc…

 

 

WRITING CENTER

Whether you are researching, writing a first draft, double-checking citations, or just sitting scratching your head, the Writing Center can help you with your writing projects. Our staff of trained and skilled writing tutors offers individual sessions Monday through Friday.
 

Call 740.774.7779 or visit the Student Success Center to set up an appointment or for walk-in tutoring on a first-come, first-serve basis. In addition, the Student Success Center has (10) PC computers and (2) Mac computers for accessing web sites designed to accompany writing textbooks (when these are on-line and available), as well as useful writing and grammar web sites.
 

Remember, the Student Success Center also offers:

➢  MLA /APA Workshops
➢  Writing Contests
➢  Publication Opportunities through Glass Enclosures
➢  Class Presentations (upon instructor’s request)
➢  Writing Guides and Helpful Handouts
➢  Electronic Resources

 

 

Policies:

In accordance with both University codes regarding academic honesty and time-proven learning strategies, the Student Success Center follows these policies:

➢  All students are responsible for their own writing projects. We do not write any part

of a student's essay; however, we are happy to discuss effective writing strategies at length.

 

➢  We do not proofread or edit student essays. Instead, we help identify individualized

patterns of error that can be corrected, helping to strengthen the writer’s strategies beyond the single assignment.  

 

➢  We do not evaluate or estimate grades. The instructor of record is the only one who

can do that.

 

➢  We adhere to the Ohio University Student Handbook in terms of defining “cheating,”

“academic misconduct,” and “plagiarism”; such dishonesty or deception will not be tolerated.

 

 

Appointment-Based, Academic Tutoring:

Tutoring in other subject areas (such as Sign Language, Spanish, French, Art History, Women and Gender Studies, History, Political Science, Sociology, and others) can often be arranged. If you are in need of tutoring assistance for a class other than math or writing, please notify your instructor to determine if options are available through the Student Success Center. You may also inquire at the Student Success Center or by calling 740.774.7779.

 

 

Supplemental Instruction (SI):

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a series of weekly review sessions offered to students who are taking historically difficult classes. SI is provided for ALL STUDENTS in the participating class who want to improve their understanding of the course material and who want to improve their grades.


Attendance is VOLUNTARY. Think of SI sessions as a time to get together with classmates to compare notes, review key concepts, and develop effective strategies for studying and preparing for quizzes and tests.


All sessions are facilitated by SI Leaders who are students themselves and have been successful in the class previously. SI Leaders attend class with you, hearing what you hear, reading what you read, and helping you grapple with tough material. Because these competent students have “been there and done that,” they can guide study groups through review sessions efficiently.


As a student, all you need to do is ask yourself if you have the drive and the motivation to work hard and excel in these challenging courses!
