The Center

Oakton's peer-to-peer tutoring service

Our Mission

The Center for Collaborative is a fun and comfortable space where Oakton peers learn together.

We are a team of 30 dedicated and trained students taking peer tutoring seminar. Most tutors have taken AP classes across the curriculum, including world language and the arts. We are questioners and critical thinkers who will collaborate with other students in order to achieve academic excellence.


The Center for Collaborative Learning is a professional, student-run program where students receive friendly, quality assistance for all classes from trained tutors. We aim to help students to become more confident thinkers and provide lasting skills to the best of our ability.


We are located in the back of the library. (Enter through the side door by door 1).  When the library is closed we are located in room 230, unless we announce otherwise.
