Peer tutoring services are free to students; they are determined by need and availability. Tutor request forms can be obtained on Blackboard, by emailing OASIS, or by stopping by the Student Affairs Suite and asking for an OASIS team member. Students generally have a tutor assigned to them within five working days. However at certain times of the year or if the demand is great, tutor assignment may take longer. You may then be placed on a short term waiting list. Tutors may be reassigned if there are students with greater academic need.
The best time to request a tutor is after a quiz or assignment that demonstrates your ability. OASIS does look at need. You may be placed in a group or have an individual tutor depending on availability.
Students interested in becoming a tutor must have earned at least a “B” in the course they wish to tutor and have department chair approval. They must complete and submit a Tutor Application Form, W-4, and I-9 as well as provide a copy of their driver’s license and social security card. Tutor Application Forms can be obtained on Blackboard, by emailing OASIS or by stopping by OASIS. Tutoring is a great way to review your knowledge and also great for Boards study.
