  • Drop-In Tutoring. Two hours a day, five days a week, drop-in tutoring is available in math, chemistry and physics.
  • Group Tutoring. Free group tutoring in a number of courses is offered each semester. Groups are formed in response to student requests.


  • Online workshops: Your Roadmap to Success ( These workshops are designed to help students identify skill areas they need to improve in, to practice new techniques, and to evaluate their progress.
  • Academic Intake appointments. Any student can meet with one of the OAE staff members to assess his/her current study strategies and develop a plan for strengthening those strategies. In particular, students in academic difficulty can benefit from this one-on-one academic counseling.
