Tutoring is available for a wide variety of subjects. Mathematics and writing tutoring are available every semester, while other subjects vary by semester. Click on these links for more information:

Always make sure you are doing the following for each tutoring session:

  • You have all relevant materials nearby (notes, textbook, calculator, pencil, etc.)
  • You have specific topics/questions/concepts that you want to discuss with the tutor
  • You are in a quiet environment that is conducive to learning
  • You have located the invite to your tutoring session and are ready to join on time

Tutoring is available to all Ocean County College or Kean Ocean students who are currently enrolled in courses, as well as other students in partnerships with OCC.

The 1-on-1 tutoring sessions are scheduled for 45 minutes.

There are drop-in/group sessions for the following courses for Fall 2021:

  • MATH-023,156,161,165
  • CHEM-180
  • BIOL-130
  • ASLN-100

Your tutor will send an invitation to a Webex conference, typically on the day of your session. The invitation will be sent to your student email. You can access your student email through Ocean Connect.

If your session start time is within one hour and you still have not received an invitation to your session, please reach out to the appropriate service area. Make sure that you are checking your OCC student email. You can access this through the Ocean Connect menu.
