Jan. 30, 2013. Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute is now offering a free online tutoring service for curriculum students. The tutoring is an extension of services offered by the college’s Academic Support Center and comes at no charge to students.
The online service, offered through Smarthinking.com, is a live chat or email-based service where students can get help in a variety of subjects including math, reading, business, accounting, sciences, nursing, allied health and more. Ninety percent of tutors in these subjects have a Masters degree or higher in their field, offering students expert assistance with assignments.
College officials hope that the new service will make it easier and more convenient for students who wish to use tutoring services. “Through this new web-based service, we can now offer tutoring for distance learning students, and provide tutoring in more areas of study,” said Camille Annas, Director of CCC&TI’s Academic Support Centers. “This service will also be very convenient for our students. Some subjects have tutors available around the clock and most all the areas have hours beyond what we’re able to offer in the Academic Support Center. So if students are up late, working on assignments, they still have access to a tutor who can help them with their assignments. It’s a great addition to the services we already offer.”
CCC&TI offers a number of free services to students through the Academic Support Center on both campuses. These services include free tutoring, Reading and English labs, placement test reviews, the Writing Center, workshops and various forms of counseling and advising. There is also an online Writing Center Lab that students can access through the Writing Center tab on Blackboard or through the college’s website.
