Online Tutoring is available to all enrolled COD students!
College of the Desert provides students with access to online tutoring services from Smarthinking. With Smarthinking, students can chat with a live tutor up to 24 hours a day from ANY internet connection.
Tutors are available for a wide range of subjects including writing (for any course), math (basic math through calc II), accounting, statistics, finance, economics, biology, nursing & allied health, physics, chemistry, office applications, and Spanish. Students can also submit completed drafts of writing assignments from any course to Smarthinking's Writing Center for a tutor to review. The tutor will provide a detailed, personalized feedback about the submitted paper, typically within 24 hours.
