Expert online tutoring with proven results

Online tutoring that drives student success

Providing the quality academic help students need, when, where, and how they need it can be difficult in the best of times. Factor in increased service expectations, diverse learning environments, and students balancing coursework, full-time employment, and families, and it’s a real challenge.

With online tutoring services from Smarthinking, students get on-demand, individual instruction and support from expert online tutors across a wide variety of subjects — from beginner to advanced, up to 24 hours a day.

Student success is our main focus. That’s why our tutors consist of a diverse group of educators and professionals with nine years of experience, on average. In fact, 90% of Smarthinking tutors hold master’s degrees or PhDs in their fields. Research shows that tutor training makes a difference, so all Smarthinking tutors go through an intensive training and certification program, specific to virtual classrooms and one-on-one instruction.
