Mission College Academic Support Center- Tutoring

Online Tutoring

Mission College offers two forms of online tutoring: Smarthinking 24/7 tutoring for many subjects, and our own ASC online tutoring for select subjects.

Smarthinking 

Mission College now provides students with access to online tutoring services from Smarthinking, brought to you by the AANAPISI programs. With Smarthinking, students can chat with a live tutor up to 24 hours a day from any internet connection. Tutors are available in a wide range of subjects including writing (for any course), math (basic math through calc II), accounting, statistics, finance, economics, biology, anatomy & physiology, physics, chemistry, nursing subjects, office applications, and Spanish. You can also submit completed drafts of your writing assignments from any course to Smarthinking's Writing Center for a tutor to review. The tutor will provide you with detailed, personalized feedback about your paper, typically within 24 hours.

The link to Smarthinking is live and now available on the MC Portal page located here: https://mywvm.wvm.edu

ASC Online Tutoring

The ASC Tutoring Center  offers online tutoring through the College's Angel course site. Students enrolled in IS 947 (Supervised Tutoring) can use the online tutoring Angel course site to chat in real-time with tutors, collaborate on a virtual whiteboard, upload documents, and also write questions in discussion forums, meet other students to join study groups, access links to course materials, and practice multimedia lessons on study skills topics. 

Current Online Tutoring Schedule Spring 15

Our tutoring is currently offered in synchronous, real-time using a web software called Tutorsbox. Students may also post questions and comments to a discussion forum in Angel and the tutors respond during their work hours. Students are also encouraged to help each other by answering other students' questions and forming study groups. Study groups can use our open chat rooms 24/7 to study together online.
