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

For more information, the latest updates, and details on using our TutorTrac scheduling system, visit www.ohio.edu/uc/aac/tutoring-services.  In addition to scheduling via TutorTrac, students can also make weekly or one-time appointments on the same-day or in advance by calling the AAC at 740-566-8888 or emailing a tutoring request to tutoring@ohio.edu.

What Are My Tutoring Options?

Student and peer tutors work with students individually or in small groups. All Ohio University Southern students are eligible for up to two hours of tutoring per week, at no cost.

Who Are The Ohio University Southern Tutors?

OUS tutors are students that have achieved a minimum of a 3.0 cumulative grade point average, and have earned at least a “B” in the subjects they are tutoring. Tutors receive training and have the primary goal of helping students achieve academic independence.

For Which Classes Are Tutors Available?

The majority of tutoring is provided for 1000 and 2000 level courses. Upper level students can usually make arrangements with their instructors for the help they need.

Tutor availability is not guaranteed for any class, however every effort will be made to ensure that a student is paired with a tutor upon request.

How Do I Request A Tutor?

To request a tutor, come to The Student Resource Commons (or the main office at the Proctorville Center) and complete a Tutor Request Form.
