Here to help learners of all levels and backgrounds.

VIRTUAL TUTORING OPTIONS
The University of Akron offers students access to eTutoring, a collaborative effort between Ohio’s two- and four-year institutions, allowing undergraduate students to interact with trained tutors in numerous academic areas. This provides academic support for traditional classes, online courses and for distance-learning students.
Services are available beyond the working hours at the tutoring centers at Bierce Library and The Polsky Building and for students who cannot make it to campus.
Can’t find a time that fits your schedule to meet with a tutor? University of Akron students will have access to Tutor.com outside of the normal business hours of the University’s two tutoring centers. Plus, the service offers tutoring for some courses within a major that are not available on campus.
Through Tutor.com, which can be accessed through "My Tools" on the course level in Brightspace, students can request scheduled or on-demand sessions for 1-on-1 tutoring in more than 250 subjects through text, voice and video options to accommodate all learner preferences.
