    Face‑to‑face interaction is the best way for some students to engage with tutors and master their work. Smarthinking provides audio and video‑enabled sessions to assist learners who prefer the virtual tutoring experience to mirror on‑ground tutoring as closely as possible.

    Any student can book an audio/video session in the pre-scheduled session area of Smarthinking. ESL students and those who require accessibility accommodations will also benefit from these audio and video session capabilities.

    Like any Smarthinking tutoring session, our audio and video sessions are also fully archived for review. Students can practice classroom problems, tackle homework, or talk through a math problem face‑to‑face with tutors.
