Online Tutoring - Overview

Pear Deck Tutor (formerly TutorMe) provides premium online tutoring for a number of subjects and can connect currently enrolled OSU Ecampus students with live tutors in under 30 seconds, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Pear Deck Tutor provides a virtual whiteboard, audio/video chat, screen-sharing, graphing calculators, and more.

OSU Ecampus students receive five (5) free hours per week during the academic term. Each week begins Monday at 12:01 a.m. PT. Each session will have a maximum timed length of 60 minutes. You may reconnect with the same tutor if they are available immediately after your session and you have minutes available. When approaching the 60 minute limit, you and your tutor will receive a 15-minute warning.

Pear Deck Tutor is intended for use in Ecampus courses only. Students using Pear Deck Tutor for other courses or purposes will be subject to removal of access.

NOTE: To better serve computer science students, the CS department is directing students to connect with department tutoring resources who have expertise in the specific course content. CS 161, CS 162, CS 261, CS 271, and CS 344 do not have direct access to Online Tutoring via Canvas. See the College of Engineering department resources page for more information. If you have additional computer science tutoring needs or questions, please send an email to Brett Jeter, assistant dean of academic programs.
