Through various programs and partnerships, we provide tutoring to adults and children. Math and literacy are two main areas of focus; we work with community members and students from Oberlin College, who assist others and gain valuable experience.
America Counts is a federal program initiated in 1999 and is designed to help improve performance in mathematics. Through a partnership between OCS, Oberlin College and Oberlin City Schools, college students have a chance to gain experience and give back to their community. Tutors are compensated through Federal Work-Study funds, and OCS provides assistance and training.

Get with the program
Get with the Program is a nonprofit organization that promotes and reinforces literacy in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) from preschool through 12th grade. While their focus is on STEM, they take the holistic approach to child development by incorporating art, music, physical education, and literacy (language arts) into STEM learning.
Du Bois Fraction Club
OCS partners with the Du Bois Fraction Club, a local organization that uses running, music and games to make math fun. Children who love math, learn math. Fraction Club makes math fun even for math-phobic children. The Du Bois Project uses simple psychology to present math challenges at the child's level.
Summer Learning enrichment
As an extension of the tutoring during the academic year in classrooms and/or after-school support, tutors continue to provide learning and enrichment over the summer. Tutors support students in grades K-8 in one-on-one tutoring, and in remediation at the high school.
