MSE Drop-in Tutoring: Spring 2023

Drop-in tutoring covering the sophomore and junior MSE curricula is available every Monday-Thursday from 4:00-5:00 PM when classes are in session. 

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.


Curricula taught in 2000- and 3000-level MSE classes


Drop-in tutoring hours are 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

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


In-person and online tutoring options are available. 

The location of in-person tutoring - Fontana 3021

The tutors

Sara Cohen

My name is Sara Cohen, and I am from Cincinnati, Ohio. I chose to go into Materials science and engineering because of the wide variety of applications it has and how we get to learn about so many different aspects of materials that make up everything. I am graduating in the fall of 2022 and I am not sure what I want to do after school yet since there are so many interesting fields to go into. Outside of school, I do cancer engineering research under Dr. Song in the biomedical engineering department, and I am a Resident Manager at Canfield Hall and an Office Assistant for residence life.

I am a fourth year MSE student from Granville, OH focusing on biomedical materials/polymers. Some of my favorite things to do on campus are attending the football games and getting food at all the awesome restaurants in the Short North. Academically I am completing an undergraduate thesis on a novel drug delivery system to treat spinal cord injuries under Dr. Tedeschi and testing a poly-dopamine +/- oxidized dextran bio-adhesive to aid in treatment of skin wounds under Dr. Powell. I am excited for this last semester at Ohio State but plan to stay at Ohio State to complete my doctoral degree. Go Bucks!
