Experienced Tutors + Proven Pedagogy = Student Success

Over 90% of Smarthinking tutors hold a Master’s degree or PhD, so LSUE students can work with an expert in every session. Smarthinking tutors average 12 years of experience working directly with students: they’re expert teachers as well as subject experts.

Pearson Smarthinking will never do a student’s work for them. Rather, Smarthinking uses a proven, problem-solving approach that helps students learn, gain confidence, and handle future assignments on your own.
