Self-Study Resources

Don't panic! This guide is designed to direct you to the extra help you need when you need it. We have resources you can access whether you are on or off-campus.  Use this guide while you're waiting to see a tutor, or to improve your study skills.

Free Online Tutoring

Smarthinking Logo




Free online tutoring is available to all students 24/7. With this service—called Smarthinking— you work with tutors via chat or have them review papers that you submit to them.

It's all free.

Once you are logged in to Canvas, you are already logged in for Smarthinking. The link to Smarthinking is on the left navigation menu inside Canvas courses.

Khan Academy Logo

It's free to register as a learner at Khan Academy, where you can watch videos on dozens of academic topics. Many MCC faculty and Academic Success Center staff recommend Khan as a study aid.
