Smarthinking

Kentucky State University provides free online tutoring! The name of our online tutoring platform is Smarthinking. Smarthinking gives students anytime, anywhere access to academic help from experts, even when you can’t get to TLC. Smarthinking is linked in every Bb course room.  We reference the link in the course room as "Live Tutoring".  All Students have access to the services at no cost. With Smarthinking, you have 24x7 live, personalized tutoring in core subjects, and expert guidance for improving students’ writing — from essays to resumes. Below you will find user instructions and videos to watch.
