Academic Achievement Center

We’re committed to helping you succeed! 

We know that all Bobcats need to feel supported as students and individuals. The Academic Achievement Center (AAC) is here to assist you in achieving your academic goals. We provide free tutoring, writing assistance, academic coaching, and Supplemental Instruction (SI) to empower you to be an independent and successful learner as you work towards your degree. Our services are delivered by fellow students who excel in their studies and want you to perform at your best.

All Ohio University students can access free academic assistance through the AAC. From tutoring to reinforcing good study habits, we collaborate with students to develop the skills and mindset needed to succeed in coursework and overcome the challenges of academic life. Studies show that students who take advantage of academic assistance tend to perform better in their classes and retain more information.

The students who serve as tutors and navigators are experts in their fields and trained following the College Reading and Learning Association guidelines on ethical standards and best practices. They are eager to share their knowledge and proven techniques to help you get the most out of your Ohio University education.

Fall 2021 Update

The AAC will continue to provide tutoring and Supplemental Instruction (SI) services remotely via Microsoft Teams during Fall semester. Our remote tutoring sessions are convenient and offer an effective and collaborative student-to-student experience. Our remote SI Sessions are peer-led and promote group discussion and learning.

Scheduling an appointment

You can schedule a peer tutoring appointment, Student Writing Center appointment, or Online Learning Navigation appointment by opening TutorTrac and selecting the appropriate course and a day and time that fits your schedule. 

If you need assistance in scheduling an appointment or have a question about our services, please call the AAC at 740-593-2644 or email us at tutoring@ohio.edu.

Once you book an appointment, your tutor or navigator will send you an email that includes a link to your tutoring appointment, which will be a Microsoft Teams meeting. Teams allows you and your tutor to talk, use chat, share documents, and work together on a virtual whiteboard.

Although we make every effort to fulfill a student’s tutoring request, there is no guarantee a tutor will be available for a particular course, especially around mid-terms and finals. Arranging a tutor depends on the number of qualified tutors and schedule compatibility. Tutoring is not offered during finals week.
