The Tutors 

AAC tutors come from a variety of majors and backgrounds, but they have one thing in common: they want to help you reach your academic potential. For a successful session, bring questions, notes, textbooks and any other useful material. You can expect a collaborative experience where you and the tutor will discuss concepts, review material, and practice strategies. Use our tutor directory to learn more about your tutor before an appointment, or get to know what else our tutors are involved in. Please note that tutors write their bios when they first begin tutoring, so information may not be current.

All appointments should be scheduled via TutorTrac. Please do not contact tutors directly.
