Peer Tutoring

The Academic Support Center (ASC) provides free individual tutoring sessions. Our tutors have been recommended by faculty members, have a strong understanding of the content material and have a desire to help others succeed. Tutoring is available in all the disciplines and in most courses offered across campus; however, because we utilize peer tutors and some courses are offered alternate years, we cannot always guarantee we can find you a tutor. 

MATH & SCIENCE TUTORS are on duty at various times during the day and evening in The Studio, located within the ASC (Lower level of the Pilgrim Library). These math & science tutors can help you with Quantitative Reasoning, College Algebra, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus I as well as  Introductory Science courses, such as Environment  Around US, Principles of Biology I & II, Chemistry Around Us, General Chemistry I & II, Earth in the Cosmos, and The Development of Life on Earth . Simply make an appointment and then go to the ASC on the day/time of your appointment to meet with a tutor for math and/or science assistance. 

To assist our students, we also subscribe to free online tutoring from OhioLINK eTutoring.  You can access this free tutoring service using your Defiance College email to sign up. For more information check out this webpage:

Tlearn more about any of the tutoring options contact Jordan Gehring, Academic Support Center Director, at or 419-783-2495.

To request a subject tutor, simply complete the online Tutor Request Form available on this webpage or complete a paper form (available in the ASC - the form is on yellow paper).  Once a tutor has been secured for you, the tutor will reach out to you to identify the best days/times for meeting.


In December 2023, the Defiance College Academic Support Center received the College Reading & Learning Association's (CRLA) International Tutor Training Program Certification. All tutoring staff are hired and evaluated following guidelines set forth through the CRLA. Tutoring staff within the ASC who complete the required 10+ hours of training and surpass 25 hours of direct contact working with students become "Level 1 Certified" Tutors.
