UO offers a variety of tutoring services, including writing and math, to support students in their coursework.

Peer subject tutoring is offered free of charge to students. Tutoring is not a substitute for attending class; however, tutoring can strengthen your understanding of the course material. The purpose of tutoring is to help you by improving your learning strategies, or to assist or guide you to the point at which you become an independent learner. Students are encouraged to use University sponsored academic support services.
