The mission of the Tutoring Center is to assist students in their desire to improve academic achievement by providing workshops, group tutoring sessions, one-on-one tutoring, and access to online tutoring at no cost to students.
The Warner Library and Student Center, Room 211, is the hub of tutoring activity on campus. The Ohio State University at Newark and the Central Ohio Technical College students learn from peers about how to be more successful in class. Tutors share information about course content as well as teach their tutees how to study for certain types of tests.
Over the years, the Tutoring Program has become one of the most popular student centered programs on the Newark campus and the COTC extended campuses. Hundreds of students have been employed as Peer Tutors and thousands more have received free tutoring.
Students work together to learn concepts, study for tests, plan projects, complete assignments and generally figure out how to make the most of the classroom experience.
Tutors are students and instructors employed to work at hours they arrange, before and after classes. They are recommended by faculty to be tutors and trained to be effective as one-to-one communicators.
Students requesting tutors select which hours are most convenient for them. Requests can be made for tutoring in any subject. Assignments are made on a first-come first-served basis according to tutor availability. Two hours a week are scheduled for each class, but more hours can be given as needed.
Tutoring is FREE to all students.
Any requests that are received before the first week of classes will be assigned after classes begin during the first week of the semester, and they will be made daily thereafter. If you do not receive an e-mail from us on or before the 4th school day after filling out a request (with the exception of the first week of classes) please contact the Tutoring Center Staff.
Here are a few comments from students in the Tutoring Program...
"Without my tutor's help, I never would have made it through math."
"Because my tutor had the same teacher, he showed me how to study for tests and I wasn't so up tight about tests after a while."
"I am glad I became a tutor. It really helped me be a better student too. And it gave me work experience for my resume'."
