MNU Online Tutoring Solves Late-Night Homework Woes

Students who get stuck on a calculus problem late at night no longer have to wait until morning to get help on their assignments. Writers who prefer a more qualified proofreader than their roommates now have another option. MNU is now offering online tutoring to all students free of charge. Accessed directly from the MNU portal, Smarthinking allows students to access live tutoring, or post questions and submit papers for later response. Some subjects, such as math and writing, offer 24/7 assistance while other subjects have scheduled times available each day.

Most e-structors, as Smarthinking tutors are called, have master’s or doctoral degrees and are subject area experts with an average of nine years experience in teaching at the college level. E-structors are supervised by educational professionals who are subject-matter experts and must go through an extensive evaluation and training program before they are chosen to work with students, according to Graduate and Adult Center for Learning Terry Gunter, EdD.

MNU will continue to offer in-person tutoring service through its Kresge Center, but Gunter thinks online tutoring will be very popular with students.

“Smarthinking will allow us to offer a much wider range of subject area tutoring,” Gunter says. “We are also greatly expanding the hours tutoring is available. This service will be a great help to all our student groups from associate’s to graduate students.”
