Ohio University

Tutoring Services

All tutoring and Supplemental Instruction services are currently provided remotely via Teams

The Academic Achievement Center (AAC) offers free academic assistance programs to all OHIO University students. From tutoring to reinforcing good study habits, we collaborate with you 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 university education.


Appointments are made through TutorTrac, a web-based management system that allows you to search for and book appointments anywhere and anytime. Schedule online through TutorTrac or by calling the Academic Achievement Center at 740.566.8888. Contact us at tutoring@ohio.edu with questions.

Your tutor or navigator will send you an email including a link to your tutoring appointment, which will be a Teams meeting. You and your tutor will be able to use chat, audio and/or video features, share documents, and work together on the 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 during mid-terms and finals. Arranging a tutor depends on the number of qualified tutors and schedule compatibility. 

Tutoring Services

  • Peer Tutoring

    Subject tutoring is available for more than 125 courses offered at OHIO University. The most popular courses tutored are 1000- and 2000-level courses in math, biology, chemistry, and physics. The one-on-one tutoring sessions are currently conducted via Teams, an effective and convenient way of consulting with a peer expert. Our services are free to all OHIO students.

  • Student Writing Center

    The Student Writing Center’s peer tutors provide free writing assistance to all OHIO University students. Our tutors can help at any stage of the writing process, from discussing and organizing ideas to polishing a final draft. Tutors will not edit papers but will guide students in improving writing strategies. These one-on-one sessions are currently conducted via Teams.

  • Supplemental Instruction

    Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a series of weekly review sessions for students taking historically difficult courses. Sessions are facilitated by SI Leaders, students who have already taken and done well in the course. SI sessions are currently run via Teams, which allows SI Leaders to share information and promote group discussion and problem solving.

  • Online Learning Navigators

    Students familiar with remote learning will help peers navigate and succeed in the online educational environment. Students can call on these navigators to aid them in mastering online course organization, managing assignment details, finding helpful resources, and understanding the technology required to complete assignments. Online Learning Navigators will customize sessions to fit students’ individual needs.
