Tutoring Resources: Peer Tutoring Services

We offer free peer tutoring services for students taking mathematics courses in the Developmental Education Department.  These services are designed to help students succeed with their courses.  Applications for a peer tutor are available in Aquinas Hall, 241, or you can call (614) 287-2474.

  • By Interactive Web: Students please call the Center and make an appointment, for an immediate or future time (depending on availability). The tutoring session will be limited to 15 minutes after orientation to this software.

Extra Help
You may come to the LSC to make test corrections or for extra help if your classroom instructor is not available. Your time will be more profitably spent if you come in with specific questions or problem numbers written down.

The Learning Skills Center can only help you if you make an effort with the materials first. It cannot be used in place of doing homework or attending class. These services and facilities are available only to students who are actively participating in the class.


  1. You must present a photo-bearing ID to borrow a calculator, textbook, or video. Materials must remain in the LSC.
  2. No test or quiz is to leave the LSC.
  3. You must follow the instructions of the instructors and/or lab assistants.
