Located on the first floor of the International Living and Learning Center (ILLC), the Learning Center provides INTO OSU students with a variety of resources to help them improve their English skills. Our resources include tutoring, computer labs, a library and study spaces.

Tutoring

The Learning Center offers tutoring for both the Academic English program students and students enrolled in Pathway Undergraduate and Graduate program. Please note that Learning Center tutors help students by guiding them through tools to improve on their own. This is not an editing service.

For our Academic English (AE) students we offer WRAP (Writing, Reading and Pronunciation) tutors. WRAP tutors help AE students with their English reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. AE students can sign up for 30 minute appointments during tutoring hours. Please do not make more than two appointments per week. WRAP appointments are available to current AE students only.

For our Pathway (PW) program students, both graduate and undergraduate, we offer Pathway Peer tutors who are trained to help students with their courses in subjects such as Anthropology, Business, Writing, Chemistry, Biology, Math, Computer Science, ALS,  Economics, and more. PW students can sign up for 30 minute or 60 minute appointment during tutoring hours. Please do not make more than two appointments per week. PW tutors are available to current PW students only.
