Peer Tutoring



Western provides academic peer tutoring in the Tutoring Center, located in A4, for students experiencing academic difficulty. As a general rule, tutors are students who have completed the course with an A or B, have been recommended by the course instructor, or excel in that particular subject area.

Peer tutoring is a free service to Western's students. Students may request a tutor in a variety of areas through the Advising & Retention Specialist, Katelynn Thompson. Please contact her at (580) 477-7741 or email her at Please note, although every effort is made to find a qualified tutor, it may not be possible to fill every request due to scheduling and qualifications.

Tutoring schedules will change every semester, as well as the tutors available. Currently we offer peer tutors in Anatomy, Biology, Chemistry, Math (all), and Reading.



In additon to peer tutoring, Western provides a FREE online tutoring service through This service is for current Western students, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The tutors are tutors in real time, and available at ANY time of the day or night when you may need additonal help.

To access the services, students must log into their Canvas account, and click on the Student Resources card on the dashboard. Then, pick the subject of interest, chose your tutoring preference (such as video chat) and begin. You can save your favorite tutor as well!
