With Smarthinking, students can practice and master Spanish.
Spanish tutoring supports introductory to intermediate level subjects in Spanish.
For introductory level students: Smarthinking covers topics of varying levels of difficulty. Students can receive help on basic grammar questions, such as number and gender agreement between nouns and adjectives, or higher level topics such as the subjunctive or preterit/imperfect, "if" clauses, and the passive voice.
For students at more advanced levels: Smarthinking tutors provide help on short stories, poems and cultural readings. For questions regarding grammatical structure, or for receiving help on short paragraphs or sentences, we encourage students to submit their questions or pre-schedule sessions with a tutor. Students may submit longer writing pieces to the Spanish Essay Center where they may choose to receive tutor responses in English or Spanish. In their responses, tutors provide comments, suggestions and a road map for the student to follow in improving the essay, but tutors do not edit, proofread, or "fix" student papers.
