Tutoring Services

The Ohlone tutoring system is college-wide, featuring a central tutorial services operation and six other discipline or location-specific tutoring sites. All sites give academic support to students needing extra help in understanding the concepts presented in the instructional process.

Tutoring is provided at no charge (free) and is available to all enrolled students to help students meet their academic goals.

The Tutoring Center (also known as the English Learning Center (ELC)), located in Hyman Hall (Room HH-217, second floor on the Fremont campus) offers peer tutoring in most subject areas.

The Counseling Department, Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS), and Disabled Students Programs and Services (DSPS) also provide tutoring and learning readiness programs and coordinate services with the tutoring centers.

Subject-specific tutoring is also available on both campuses.
