All Frog Tutoring tutors will meet with assigned students to provide one-on-one private tutoring for subject matters in their areas of expertise. Tutors are to serve as a guide and coach to assist their students to become a successful, independent learner while integrating effective study and learning strategies to maximize the student’s potential for academic progress. Ultimately, it is the tutor’s responsibility to motivate students to want to learn, achieve, and be self-motivated.

From Oonagh Loughran, PhD Program Director for the Philips Institute for Oral Health Research:
I would like to draw your attention to a new PhD program offered at VCU. The program is housed in the Philips Institute for Oral Health Research at Virginia Commonwealth University.
The Philips Institute is located on the medical campus at Virginia Commonwealth University. We are in close proximity to, and collaborate with the Massey Cancer Center, an NCI designated cancer center, the VCU Medical and Dental Schools and the Institute for Engineering and Medicine. Students will have the opportunity to work with faculty in these centers.
Our well-funded faculty of research clinicians and scientists help translate our discoveries to the patient population.
The title of the Ph.D. program is Oral Health Research and students can conduct research in one of three areas:
- Immunology and infectious diseases
