Welcome back to OCU, everyone!

OCU is back in business with many tutoring options available. We have in-person and virtual appointments available and are completely free. 

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please reach out to me or stop by my office.

Have a great school year!

Peer educators of the LEC offer skilled guidance in writing, subject-specific tutoring, and academic coaching for undergraduate and graduate students of OCU. Peer educators are here to help students succeed by cultivating confidence and independent learning skills through collaboration and support. 

The LEC offers free peer services to all students to ensure academic success:

  • 50-minute one-on-one sessions 
  • Drop-in tutoring 
  • Online tutoring 
  • In-person tutoring
  • Academic Coaches are peer educators and the LEC Supervisor who extend skills in time management, test taking, organization, and identifying academic resources. 

The LEC is a safe place to inquire, learn, and ask questions. To connect with a peer educator, schedule an appointment for a time that works for you. More information about booking appointments can be found below or under the "book an appointment" tab.     

*We are located on the first floor of the Dulaney-Browne Library
