Academic Advising

Free services are available to students through two labs—the Accounting and Math Lab and the Writing Lab. Labs are open Monday-Friday from 10am-5pm and no appointment is necessary.

Additionally, Champlain is now offering you web-based tutoring through a company called SMARTHINKING.  This service is in addition to our existing academic support labs (see above) which are staffed by student-tutors. 

The big advantage with SMARTHINKING is that it offers you real-time online tutoring and homework help 24 hours a day, seven days a week—from any computer with Internet access. Live tutors are available until 3 am. 

In addition to communicating with live tutors, you can also access tutorials in math, business, writing, and sciences, as well as find a full range of study resources, including writing manuals, sample problems, research tools, and study skills manuals. 

SMARTHINKING is not a proofreading/editing service and does not provide "answers." Their tutors typically have masters or doctoral degrees and are teachers themselves. 

As a student you will have access to SMARTHINKING through your online portal, which you will receive access to upon registration.
