Housed within the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences, the Office of Academic Services (OAS) offers individualized tutoring in writing, mathematics, and science. OAS promotes active, independent learning that seeks to assist students in developing critical thinking skills. The office’s professional staff uses a student-centered holistic approach, which considers the “whole student” when discussing academic success strategies.
All online tutoring is conducted by main-campus tutors. To use online tutoring, download the Wimba live platform. You will be given instructions on how to do this when you make your first appointment. The visual connection for the tutoring session is established through a shared computer screen, allowing the student and the tutor to interact simultaneously. The audio connection can be established through a phone or a headset.
