Online tutoring with Smarthinking

Aside from the tutoring center on campus and fellow students to help out, did you know that NECC offers Smarthinking online tutoring?

According to the website, Smarthinking is “an academic support program that gives students online access to live, one-to-one assistance from over 1500 trained and qualified tutors.”

Note that students will have a limited number of minutes available. Please use your time wisely.  If you’ve exceeded the maximum, you will receive a message to contact the Tutoring Center.

Director of Tutoring Services Lynne Nadeau said, “NECC has offered Smarthinking online tutoring to students since 2008.

The tutoring is free for up to four hours, which equals, for example, approximately five Smarthinking Writing Center submissions.” Traditionally, students go to the tutoring center or get tutoring from friends, but now NECC has opened a door to provide tutoring for students that prefer online tutoring.

Students are encouraged to learn about this new opportunity through a workshop.  There will be a workshop to explain Smarthinking and what it has to offer on Friday, Oct. 16 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.   You can also attend the second session from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Tech Center, room 103A.
