Syllabus Statement

Faculty, please feel free to include this statement in your syllabus.

Tutoring Services offers free tutoring for over 150 courses for all OU undergraduates on the Athens campus. You can make a free 30 minute appointment, walk-in or drop-in at the Math and Science Center in Alden 101 at the Academic Advancement Center. For a one-hour appointment and a small fee of $10, you can meet with a Peer Tutor at the AAC, as well. Peer Tutoring is free for students who are registered with the Student Accessibility Services, Office of Multicultural Student Access and Retention, College Adjustment Program, Commuters and Veterans, and Athletics. All appointments must be booked through Tutor Trac. Please keep in mind that tutoring is not a guaranteed service. Book appointments early. For more information, the latest updates and to use TutorTrac, visit us at www.ohio.edu/tutoring.

To make the most of your session:

  • Meet with a tutor early in the semester. Do not procrastinate. Tutors have limited appointments and are booked quickly; particularly during mid-terms and finals.
  • Be prepared with your textbooks, notes, and specific questions concerning the material.
  • Tutors are not teachers. They will not "lecture" or "re-teach." They do not replace a missed class. If you miss class, make sure you get notes from a classmate and meet with your professor during office hours.
  • Cancel your appointments in a timely manner. If you can't make a session, cancel your appointment 8 hours in advance on TutorTrac. A session that is not canceled prevents another student from booking that appointment and leaves the tutor waiting for you.
