Teaching & Learning Center

The Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) provides many services FREE to all BGSU students.  The TLC strives to provide an atmosphere conducive to learning. We welcome university students to the center to help them: achieve academic success, improve self-esteem, and gain scholastic independence.

BG Firelands Asynchronous Tutoring

You may submit your course questions using your BG email account to Askatutor@bgsu.edu . In the Subject line, you need to state the course and the instructor (i.e. ACEN 1000 ~ Green-Churchwell). In the body of the email, you may input your general question. Reminder, for academic honesty and integrity purposes, specific homework questions and examples cannot be answered outright.

BG Firelands Synchronous Tutoring

If you desire to have electronic face-to-face tutoring, you may request online tutoring access by emailing the TLC from your BG email account at firetlc@bgsu.edu. In the Subject line, you need to state ONLINE TUTORING REQUESTED, along with the course and the instructor’s name (i.e. ACEN 1000 ~ Green-Churchwell). Upon receiving the request, you will receive a link to the synchronous tutoring site and be assigned a tutor and support schedule.

Academic Coaching

All BGSU Firelands are eligible to work with an academic coach. These confidential sessions are designed to improve students’ personal and professional goals. During this time, an academic coach can help students adjust to the transition of online learning, especially if technology is not your thing.

Satisfactory Academic Progress

Students who are under Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) may still meet their agreement requirements by emailing the TLC (firetlc@bgsu.edu ) to schedule an intake assessment and establish an academic plan.


To schedule an appointment for the services offered online in the Teaching and Learning Center, you will use NAVIGATE.
