What is

Peer Consulting?

Peer Consulting is a completely free academic support service available to ALL students of Oregon Tech. 

SPRING TERM UPDATE: Peer Consulting will offer virtual appointment-based tutoring to support your remote courses and supplement your online learning experience.

While we'll miss seeing you in the center, we're happy to offer in-person virtual appointments through ZOOM.

As a cost saving measure, I will have reduced office hours and will be unavailable on Fridays through fall term. I appreciate your patience as we all adjust to these changes.  Please feel free to email me, and I will be sure to get back to you on the following business day.
