Did you know that WCU is now offering FREE Online Tutoring through Smarthinking? Tutors are trained to provide high quality learning assistance to your students, up to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
Smarthinking provides students with convenient and effective tutoring, for many different subject areas. Have a student in need? In addition to traditional tutoring, encourage your student to try Smarthinking.
The Smarthinking service includes drop-in tutoring, writing/essay review & practice, and video tutorials. The service is free for all West Chester students. The service is cross-platform and only requires an internet connection and a web-browser.
The online tutors are professional educators and experts in their content areas. They focus on the needs of each student, in order to provide a student-centered, active learning experience.
Faculty can access Smarthinking via D2L as instructed in the video under the Smarthinking tab on the Student page.
Students applying to become a tutor will complete an online application form. Students should ask faculty for their permission first to put their name down as a recommender. Once the faculty member agrees, students can then complete the application; faculty will receive an email to a link to complete the online recommendation form.
