Tutorial Services

Attention Students!

Beginning May 26, we will be implementing a new login for Smarthinking. This new system is much simpler, requiring only your UC username and password to access the system. 

Students will not have access to information from previous tutoring sessions when the new login goes into effect. Students interested in having copies of previous tutoring sessions should follow the steps below to make personal copies of their materials. 

1. Log into your SMARTHINKING account.
2. Click on “Personal Archive” at the top, right side of the page.
3. On left side you have filters, check the “writing” box under Type, “returned” under status. On right side of this you will have your essay.
4. Click on the title of your essay, scroll down the page and click on “Download Essay” for Tutor Response.
5. Choose a location to save the file (usually on the desktop).
6. You can keep the default name for the file.
7. You should have Microsoft Word Document or Rich Text Format in the save Save as Type box.
8. Click Save.
9. Refer to the document from the location where you save it.
Tutorial Services are free of charge to all Utica College undergraduate students and are coordinated through the Office of Opportunity Programs. Tutor request forms and other tutoring forms are available online or in room 109, Hubbard Hall. Use the links to the left to access online forms.

Requests are filled depending on the availability of tutors, and every attempt is made to assign tutors as quickly as possible. As tutors become available assignments can be made within a week.

The Coordinator of Tutorial Services is in constant contact with professors to identify potential tutors, to monitor the progress of tutees, and also to offer alternatives to students requesting tutors if no tutors are available. Students requesting tutors should allow a minimum of two weeks before inquiring about the status of their request.

Additionally, peer tutors work with individual students on issues such as time management, test taking, and study strategies.
