Who are the Tutors?

Tutors are college graduates or students who have outstanding academic records and are selected on the basis of their knowledge and academic performance in the subjects they tutor, their communication skills, and their ability to relate to Oxnard College students in a positive and supportive way. The Oxnard College tutors are hired through a thorough application and interview process and are required to submit a transcript as well as a tutor philosophy.

Students can drop by tutoring as much as they like. These services are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Drop-in Tutoring
  • One-on-One Tutoring
  • Study Groups
  • Study Skills and Specialized Workshops

Writing and Reading Center

In the Writing Skills Center (WSC) students can work with tutors at any stage of the writing process, from organizing ideas, developing outlines, to focusing on a topic, and helping with grammar usage. Tutors are trained to use tutorial time efficiently working with the student in 20 minutes sessions, to begin, critique, and improve the written work in progress. Proper writing is best done on an ongoing basis; our tutors are not miracle workers whose job is to "save" student writers with last minute assignments, but rather to address writing issues within the framework of a given tutorial session. The WSC tutors will not edit, rewrite or change anything in a paper; in other words, they will not write or rewrite papers for students. They will provide students with strategies for revising and editing their own work.
