Our expert tutors

Smarthinking tutors are a diverse group of current and former educators and professionals with nine years of teaching or tutoring experience, on average. Moreover, 90% of Smarthinking tutors hold master’s degrees or PhDs in their fields.

Research shows that tutor training makes a difference in the impact of tutoring on students. All of our tutors go through an intensive training program and tutor certification specific to online, one- on- one tutoring, which includes: • effective teaching methods • our proprietary whiteboard technology • student management • subject -specific advising

Our approach

Our proven approach is valued and respected by faculty. Tutors do not solve problems for students but rather use a problem- solving-based teaching style to help students learn. Here, students gain confidence in their skills and learn to handle future assignments on their own.
