University Tutoring Services

The Academic Achievement Center (AAC) provides online tutoring appointments that empower students to achieve independent academic success. Students meet with peer tutors to review principles, learn content-specific study strategies, and deepen knowledge in historically difficult courses across many disciplines. Similarly, students engage writing tutors to collaborate at any point during the writing process to focus ideas and polish their expression. The AAC’s services are free to students enrolled at Ohio University’s main or regional campuses.

Beginning the second week of the fall semester, online tutoring appointments are available during the following times:

  • Mondays – Thursdays: 9am - 8pm
  • Fridays: 9am - 5pm
  • Sundays: 4pm - 8pm

Policies

In accordance with both University codes regarding academic honesty and time-proven learning strategies, the Student Success Center follows these policies:

  • Students are responsible for their own writing projects. We do not write any part of a student's essay; however, we are happy to discuss effective writing strategies at length.
  • Do not proofread or edit student essays. Instead, we help identify individualized patterns of error that can be corrected, helping to strengthen the writer’s strategies beyond the single assignment.
  • Do not evaluate or estimate grades. The instructor of record is the only one who can do that.
  • Adhere to the Ohio University Student Handbook in terms of defining “cheating,” “academic misconduct,” and “plagiarism”; such dishonesty or deception will not be tolerated.
