Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) February 22, 2012
Smarthinking, Inc., the market leader in higher education online tutoring and academic support, today announced the addition of Liberal Arts Math to its comprehensive mathematics tutoring services. The tutoring is available to all customers, both institutional and consumers.
With the addition of the Liberal Arts Math tutoring support services, students can:
- Receive live, on-demand tutoring (90 percent of Smarthinking Math tutors have a master’s or Ph.D. in their discipline)
- Submit a question for asynchronous response (generally within 24 hours)
- Pre-schedule a live tutoring session
All live tutoring sessions take place one-to-one in Smarthinking’s virtual whiteboard, allowing the tutor and student to collaborate in real time. Tutors use a problem-solving teaching style to help students learn the underlying math concepts and become better equipped to handle future assignments on their own. In addition, all sessions are archived for future use by the student for test preparation.
“The launch of 24/7 support for Liberal Arts Math adds tremendous value to our customers and enables them to provide expanded services to their students,” said Kirk Benningfield, Ph.D., Vice President of Education Operations at Smarthinking. “This extension of Smarthinking’s services, coupled with continued technological upgrades and other new disciplines of support, is in response to the needs and requests of institutions and underscores our commitment to their success.”
