Tutoring in the Academic Success Center

The Academic Success Center offers peer tutoring during our normal hours of operation.

Tutoring in Alva

Peer tutors are scheduled at regular times to help with course work.  Tutoring is both walk-in and by appointment.  Stop by the the Center in IE113 or call 580-327-8138.

Distance Tutoring

Distance tutoring is provided by the peer tutors in the Academic Success Center during their regularly scheduled hours for students who cannot come to the Center in person.  Distance tutoring is available by request. 


We recommend:

     •Leave sufficient lead time. We do not have tutors in all subject areas at all times, so you may have to wait to meet with someone. We can handle most requests within 24 hours, usually sooner.
     •Bring all your books and assignments with you.
     •Be as specific as you can about what you want to work on with the tutor.
     •Plan to spend about 30 minutes.  Some sessions are shorter, some longer, but it's best to leave sufficient time so that you and the tutor do not feel rushed.
     •Don't wait until the last minute to consult a tutor.  You may want to make changes in your work after a tutoring session, so it's best to leave time to do so.
