Drop-in Tutoring

Drop-in tutoring covering the sophomore and junior MSE curricula is available every week, beginning the second week of the semester. This effort is part of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering's continuing effort to make the major a welcoming and inclusive space for all students to learn. We expect that students may be able to make a better tutoring relationship by working with the same tutor, an MSE senior, across multiple classes instead of only using individual class office hours. Meet the tutors below.


Curricula taught in 2000- and 3000-level MSE classes


Drop-in tutoring hours are 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM from Sunday to Thursday when classes are in session.

Drop-in hours are cancelled on nights before holidays and university breaks.

To schedule additional tutoring hours, email the times you are available to msetutoring@osu.edu.


All meetings will be held via Zoom.

Kayla Hepler

My name is Kayla Hepler, I am a senior from Painesville, Ohio graduating this spring.  Originally, I became a material science and engineering major because I hated the material that my scoliosis brace was made from growing up and was convinced that there could be a better option. This struck my curiosity and made me want to learn more about materials and their application in the medical field. I currently do materials characterization and machine learning research under Dr. Jinschek while taking primary biomaterials focused classes. Outside of material science, I enjoy sailing with The Ohio State University Sailing Club and am also very passionate about the college of engineering’s mental health and diversity initiatives!
