SSA Tutoring is offering virtual/online tutoring only for the Fall term. Please click the following link to learn more about how to schedule an appointment: Zoom Tutoring.

SSA Peer-Tutoring offers support in over 20 course subjects, along with standalone support for Study Skills, Test-Taking, Note-Taking, and Time Management. 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 covers all course subjects aside from Math, Hard Science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth Science), Computer Science, Writing, and English as a Second Language. Tutoring dedicated to those subjects at WOU can be found here:

Preparing for Your Appointment

Our services at the Learning Center are available to all WOU students, but do have some limitations. We want you to have a successful experience with your tutor. That usually requires some preparation on your part.

  • Attend class regularly
  • Bring all needed materials to your appointment
  • Work on the assignment, reading, etc. before you come to your appointment
  • Take charge by telling the tutor what you need
  • Tutors are here to support your learning, not do the work for you
  • Use your professor as your primary source of information

Important Reminders

  • 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 can also leave a comment of what you would like to work on when you make 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.
