Peer tutors are fellow WOU students who are knowledgeable in course content, academic skills, professor expectations for coursework, and campus resources. Students who get tutoring early in the term are more likely to persist, succeed, and enjoy their academic experience here at WOU!

SSA Tutoring  is open during the Fall, Winter, and Spring terms, Weeks 2-10, and covers all course subjects aside from Math, Computer Science, and Writing. Tutoring dedicated to those subjects at WOU can be found here:

Our services are available to all WOU students, however, we want you to have a successful experience with your tutor. That usually requires some preparation on your part:

  • Attend class regularly
  • Bring relevant course materials to your appointment
  • Work on the assignment, reading, etc. prior to the appointment, then identify where you would like further support
  • Take charge by telling the tutor what you need
  • Tutors will NOT do the work for you, but are trained to listen and respond to your individual needs
  • Use your professor as your primary source of class information

If you would like to request disability related accommodation(s) to participate in a WOU activity or event, please notify Disability Services (ODS) at 503-838-8250 or at least three (3) business days in advance.


  • Once you schedule an appointment, please prepare some questions, topics, and/or concepts in advance, so the tutor has an idea of what you would like to discuss. You should leave a comment of what you would like to work on when making the appointment.
  • If you need to cancel an appointment, please let the tutor know as soon as possible. You must cancel an appointment two hours in advance, if possible, or it will be marked as a no-show. After three no-shows, you will need to contact the Tutoring Coordinator at in order to schedule appointments again. You may cancel appointments through WCS, by clicking on the appointment and selecting “Cancel this Appointment.”
  • If no tutors are available for a class, you can request a tutor through the WCS system. You can also contact, along with any other questions you have about tutoring.
