OASIS (Office of Academic Support and Instructional Services) also offers tutorial services in various subject areas, particularly in the math and sciences. OASIS offers both workshops and Study Tables options.
- Workshops are structured group learning study-sessions, which are led by a tutor that explains course concepts and encourage a collaborative learning environment. Each workshop session is 2 hours and meets once or twice a week. Attendance is mandatory. Most workshops are course specific and pace a particular professor or lecture. Students must apply during 10th week of the current quarter for workshops the following quarter.
- Study Tables is tutoring that is available on a drop-in basis. Tutors are available to help explain concepts and answer questions at the available times and days posted. They will not do your homework. You do not need to sign up for Study Tables and may come in any time. However, you will need to sign in and out with a tutor.
UCSD Writing Center: offers assistance to UCSD undergraduates who are working on papers for any UCSD course. They can offer help for any stage of the writing process.
