Requesting A Tutor:
To see if we offer tutoring for a class you are taking at OCC or if the Student Success Center does not currently have a tutor for your class, please contact Virginia Nuzzolese-Laflamme at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, student ID number, and preferred contact information along with the course and instructor.
There are several tutors working each hour to help students understand concepts and stay on task with their homework. Tutors strive to help students better understand course concepts as well as provide strategies for test preparation, note-taking, and time management.
We offer 25-minute and 50-minute one-on-one appointments that students can schedule themselves. Please visit our TUTR A050N Canvas page for more information about how to make tutoring appointments.
In addition to the appointment options listed above, students who are members of the following programs can schedule standing weekly appointments, appointments that meet at a set day and time every week: Veterans, DSPS, EOPS, Equity, Guardian Scholars, Puente, Umoja, STEM, and PRESS. Students in these programs can ask their counselors to submit a referral form to the Student Success Center for this extra service. Once received, the student will be contacted by a staff member to set up a weekly appointment. The tutor will review class concepts, help answer homework questions, and provide study strategies, like test preparation.
Study groups are a good way for students to work together to learn and understand difficult material. The tutor leading the session will review class-specific concepts, help answer questions, and provide study-skills tips. Students may request a study group once they have enrolled in TUTR A050N. At least 5 student requests are needed to form a group. Once the study group is formed, other students from the same class with the same instructor are welcome to join.
If students or instructors are interested in setting up or joining a study group, please contact Virginia Nuzzolese-Laflamme, Tutorial Services Specialist, at email@example.com.
