Academic Resource Center

The Academic Resource Center and Writing Lab are online!

ARC’s Math Clinic, ARC-Link and Writing Lab sessions have moved online to continue to support students during temporary remote learning. All sessions are now taking place on video and chat platforms such as Microsoft Teams, Google Hangouts, Zoom, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Facetime. You are free to use the device that best works for you: desktop computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone – whatever is most convenient for you and your tutor.

ARC-Link and Math Clinic Virtual Tutoring Appointments

To make an appointment with an ARC-Link or Math Clinic tutor just send us an email at or fill out the remote tutoring request form. Please remember to specify what time zone you’re in and the videoconferencing service or app you prefer, and attach any documents your tutor might need for the session. You can also check our tutor schedule to see which subjects are covered and when tutors are available.

Writing Lab Virtual Tutoring Appointments

To make an appointment with the Writing Lab – for written feedback or real-time consultations – please send an email to, specifying the following information:

  • the name of your course and professor
  • the writing prompt and assignment
  • where you are in the process of writing your assignment
  • the due date of your assignment
  • specific areas you would like to focus on with the tutor (e.g., organization, introduction or conclusion, integration of sources).

Please remember that written feedback is not proofreading or editing. Our goal is to make you your own best editor and proofreader.

Stay connected by following ARC and the Writing Lab on Facebook. There, you’ll find weekly updates on our tutors, helpful study tips, and information on any upcoming virtual events. We look forward to seeing you online!

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) is a combined writing, tutoring, and academic technology space located on the fourth floor of the Quai d’Orsay Learning Commons.  ARC manages the Blackboard™ online learning platform, and houses several peer-tutoring programs for students.  These include the AUP Writing Lab, the ARC-Link subject tutors, the Math Clinic, and the Tech/Media tutors. We are here to help you succeed in your university studies, and all services are free-of-charge for AUP students.
