How Online Students Can Take Advantage of Tutoring

Continuing and Distance Education (CDE) and South Dakota State University (SDSU) have partnered with Smarthinking to provide accessible tutoring services to students enrolled in SDSU online courses. This service is free to those enrolled, available in a wide range of subjects to support online students with their coursework.

Online doesn’t mean alone. In addition to your instructors, advisors and peers, Smarthinking tutoring is a valuable resource to improve academic success.


Smarthinking online tutoring services are accessible through your SDSU online course(s). If you do not see Smarthinking in your course content, please reach out to your course instructor and/or CDE.

Don’t let your busy life get the best of you. With 24/7 availability and four different types of online tutoring services, Smarthinking fits into your schedule—whenever you need it most.

Students can connect on demand with an expert tutor for a drop-in session 24 hours a day. They can also schedule an appointment in advance, submit writing for detailed review or ask a question offline without installing any software.
