Smarthinking, a Pearson service unit, is hiring experienced, educated individuals to serve as part-time online tutors. Smarthinking provides online tutoring to support colleges, universities, high schools, and individuals.

Each term (spring, summer, fall) tutors have a set weekly schedule—typically between 8-19 hours per week—based on their scheduling preferences. The tutor hiring timeline is largely as follows: screening and hiring in May/June; tutor training in June/July; fall schedules set in July/August; fall term shifts begin early September.
