Osceola Writing Center

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer online consultations at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.

If you need assistance with your paper, please come in to the Writing Center for a face-to-face consultation (no appointment needed). If you would like to receive feedback on your paper but can't come to a campus, please use the Smarthinking service. Thank you!

Smarthinking

Just a friendly reminder to let you know about Smarthinking, the free online tutoring tool for Valencia's students. Smarthinking offers tutoring in a variety of subjects: math, nursing, allied health, writing, reading, science, Spanish, business, computers and technology. Students have several options: Drop-In Tutoring, Scheduled Appointments, Offline Questions, and Paper Submissions to the Writing Center. Math tutors are available 24/7, please consult the tutoring schedule for all other subjects. Just added this summer are apps for both iOS and Android devices.

Students can access Smarthinking through the Courses tab in Atlas, under My Courses. Students have an eight hour limit of usage per semester, an increase from the previous five hour limit. A tip for you: Smarthinking is best used as a back up to on-campus services and support, not a replacement. Directly above the Smarthinking link in Atlas is a link to Learning Support's website, a great place to check for campus-based information.

Rest assured, Smarthinking tutors are:

...seasoned educators — 90% have an advanced degree in their fields and they average over 9 years of teaching or tutoring experience. Drawn from college faculty, graduate students, high school teachers and retired educators, all tutors must complete Smarthinking's online training program and are regularly evaluated for quality and consistency.
