How Does Tutoring Work?

All Learning Center tutors are PSU students too! We currently offer 30 minute sessions by appointment only. Sign up with Penji to book your first session! All tutoring sessions are currently taking place remotely via Zoom.

Need Technical Help?

If you are using the Penji app, take a look at this Penji tutorial video. For more details on how to use Zoom, check out OAI's Zoom technology tutorial. You may also send us an email at thelearningcenter@pdx.edu with questions. 

Don't want to use an app?

We got you covered! Penji is also accessible through a browser based platform that has full functionality so you can sign up and reach our tutors using a computer. This makes it more convenient if you also use your computer for Zoom meetings. 

No Show Policy + Extra Credit

If your tutoring session is for extra credit, report each session by filling out the Penji feedback survey and including your instructor's email. Students who don’t show up for their appointments 3 times in a term without communicating ahead of time, cannot book further appointments without special permission.
