Tutoring: The Tutoring Center offers all Normandale students free, walk-in tutoring provided by faculty, staff and peers in core academic courses including mathematics, writing, science, logic, reading and EAP. Tutoring schedules are posted at www.normandale.edu/asc/Tutoring.cfm and in the center.

Supplemental Instruction (SI): SI review sessions are offered in certain historically difficult Normandale courses by trained tutors who attend the course. The review sessions are regularly scheduled, out of class, voluntary, and are open to all students enrolled in the course. Specific session information is available in the center.

Online Tutoring: Normandale students are eligible to receive up to 300 minutes per year in online tutoring through Smarthinking. This service provides tutoring support in mathematics, writing, science, accounting, world languages and more. Tutoring is available 24/7 and includes online interaction with tutors, an online writing lab and the ability to submit questions and receive responses from a tutor. The Smarthinking link can be accessed through Desire2Learn (D2L).
