Academic Assistance & Resource Center

We are an award-winning program that provides free peer tutoring for many entry-level and some upper-level courses. We assist with writing, no matter what class. We also gladly meet students where they are. That means we offer you versatile tutoring options: in-person, online, livestream, individual, group, appointment, walk-in… We want you to discover what works for you!

All sessions are led by one of our trained and certified tutors — many of whom were hand-selected by your instructor. Our tutors are your peers — they have experienced academic challenges and utilized the AARC to push through.

They are tutors because they really care about your success.
