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.
The AAC will continue to provide tutoring and other academic assistance remotely via Microsoft Teams during summer semester. Our remote tutoring sessions are convenient and offer an effective and collaborative student-to-student experience.
Scheduling an appointment
You can schedule tutoring or academic coaching via TutorTrac.
Once you book an appointment, your tutor or coach 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.
