Free Online Tutoring

If it's 3 a.m. and students need help, they can try Smarthinking, a free online service that offers tutoring in many subjects, including math, accounting, chemistry and more. Students access Smarthinking from their D2L account homepage. Students go to ”Student Resources” and click on “Smarthinking.”

More than 80 percent of Smarthinking tutors have a master's degree or Ph.D. in their discipline with an average of eight years of teaching experience. This service has a limited number of hours of tutoring available each semester. Once those hours are reached, online tutoring will not be available until the following semester.
