Oakland Tech provides several tutoring opportunities — free — to students who need extra academic support to help master course material.

Math Mentors

Open to all students in all classes at all levels, Math Mentors is staffed by highly qualified volunteers and paid students who have successfully completed pre-calculus or higher and really know the ropes. There’s no need to sign up — just drop in! — Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, from 3:40 to 5 PM, in Room 236. Please email Natalie Mann, Math Dept. Chair, at natalie.mann@ousd.org with any questions.


A peer tutoring program open to all 9th graders, Boost takes place every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 3:35 to 5 PM and is offered in all four core subjects — Math, Biology, English and History (California Studies). Older students repeating Math or Biology are also welcome.

Tutoring is offered in different teacher’s classrooms depending on the day of the week but all sessions are open to all students. That means any student can receive help in any classroom — not just in their own teachers’ classrooms. A teacher is present but the bulk of tutoring is provided by 10th-12th grade peer tutors who have mastered the material and received coaching.

While many students use Boost for extra help prior to a test or with a paper, all 9th graders are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to do homework in a quiet academic setting with support available whenever needed. Please contact Mr. Colley with any questions.
