Smarthinking Tutoring & MyLabsPlus Essay Submission (Online Guide): Home

A guide to a 24/7 online tutoring service where TCL students can interact with live tutors.


Through Smarthinking, TCL students have access to online tutors and tutoring resources. The service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

There are four main ways to connect with a Smarthinking tutor:

  • Connect with an e-structor now allows students to meet with a tutor online, post a question, and have a conversation back and forth. The wait is usually about 2.5 minutes to connect with an online tutor this way.
  • Schedule a personal session allows students to set up a half hour block of time to meet with a Smarthinking tutor. It is similar to "connect with an e-structor now" but is pre-arranged.
  • Submit your writing allows students to submit a writing sample to a tutor and receive feedback on that sample.
  • Submit a question allows students to submit a question and receive a comprehensive response.
