The Peer Tutoring program at Oberlin promotes student success through peer-to-peer learning and collaboration. Peer tutoring is available via drop-in sessions or by individual appointment and is free of charge to Oberlin students.
Peer tutors are content specialists who are hired to cover specific courses in which they have already been successful. A peer tutor can help you think through course concepts, provide feedback, develop study strategies, and build crucial skills to succeed in your classes.
Have a question about a problem set, or just want some help reviewing before a test? Drop-in tutoring is a great way to check in with a peer tutor without having to schedule an appointment! The drop-in tutoring schedule for the Spring 2022 semester is below:

Peer tutors help students think through course concepts, develop study strategies, and build crucial skills to succeed in their classes. Peer tutors must have earned a grade of B or higher in the course(s) they would like to tutor, and be passionate about helping fellow students succeed.
While we accept and review applications for tutors from all disciplines, we enthusiastically encourage applications from students who would like to tutor courses in the following departments:
- Computer Science
- Music Theory and/or Aural Skills
