Learning Services

The Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Multicultural Education (ODIME) has an ongoing partnership with Learning Services under which our staff can refer students for limited tutoring services. Learning Services recruits and maintains a tutor referral service. Tutors are available for most subjects offered at George Mason University. Students should also consider taking one of the workshops offered by Learning Services on study skills or exam strategies.
