Yah you can say tune up...a mechanic will know what you mean, but to be more specific or let them know you have an idea of what you want done mention checking fluid levels, brake/fuel lines, brakes, transmission/rearend/exhaust for leaks, belts/pulleys on engine, tire condition and air pressure, battery amperage, idle control, spark plugs etc. Just a few things that should be routinely checked and classified under "tune up"
An oil change is usually covered in tune up but you mentioned it's been done already so be sure to mention that unless you want it changed again.
Also it might be worthwhile to have the fuel filter replaced. They should be replace every 10k-20k miles depending on driving conditions/use and the type of gas you use (off brand vs name brand). You can go more than 20k miles...I replaced mine at 40k (bought the car with 17k) and it wasn't too dirty...
