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 helping them identify and use strategies and tools to improve on their own. This is not an editing service.

There are two types of tutoring available in the Learning Center: Open Tutoring Lab and Appointment Tutoring.

The Open Tutoring Lab is open Monday - Friday from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM in room 134. Students can work on their assignments here, and if they have a question, tutors are available to help them. Students do not need an appointment to use the Open Tutoring Lab. Students can stay for as long as they want and come as often as they need.

Appointment Tutoring is one-on-one tutoring for students who need a little extra help on an assignment. Appointments are available Monday - Friday from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM and 3:30 PM to 7:00 PM. Appointments are 25-minutes long and students can make two appointments per week. Appointments can be made online or by coming to the Learning Center front desk.
