STEM Center

At The STEM Center, OCC and Kean Ocean students can get help with homework, course material, and exam prep math, physics, biology, chemistry, and engineering courses. The STEM Center currently offers in-person, online synchronous, and online asynchronous support (math only for asynchronous). In-person and online synchronous sessions are approximately 45 minutes long. Students can schedule two sessions for the same course in a day, as long as there is at least three hours between the appointment start times.

Types of Tutoring

  • n-person tutoring sessions take place in the STEM Center, located in the Tutoring Center on the second floor of the Instructional Building (#5), and are appointment only for the Fall 2021 semester. Students can come to the STEM Center without scheduling an appointment, however, we cannot guarantee that a tutor will be available.
  • Online Synchronous tutoring sessions are conducted through Webex. Instructions for scheduling sessions can be found below.
  • Asynchronous tutoring students can submit a math question through the submission form. The link for this form can be found below.

Please schedule all tutoring sessions with the full intent of attending. Students that accumulate three no-shows in a 30-day period will be restricted from scheduling their own sessions and will need to contact the appropriate service area to schedule appointments. Appointments must be cancelled at least 12 hours in advance. This can be done in TutorTrac, or by calling 732-255-0400 ext, 2431.
