Month two of the school year means homework and mid terms, and Pierce County Library System has help for students and the whole family with its improved online homework service‚ÄîLive Homework Help.
“Students of all ages can find help with their homework assignments as well as improve their study skills,” said Judy Nelson, the Library’s youth services director. “The tutors do not simply give answers; rather they help guide students to information, answers and learning.”
Online tutors are available on demand every day from 3 p.m. to midnight for one-to-one help in math, science, social studies and English. Spanish-speaking people may get help in math, science and social studies.
Pierce County Library is offering a newly expanded level of Live Homework Help to include help for early learners and adult learners, which means children in kindergarten through adults of any age, may get assistance through the easy, convenient service.
Professionally trained and experienced tutors help students in kindergarten through 12th grades with homework assignments, skills building and test prep. Tutors also assist adults with their GED, adult education courses, grammar help with their resume or a work-related project, and more.
Through Live Homework Help, the student and tutor communicate in real time using IM or instant messaging as well as two-way whiteboards.
The tutor sees the grade level, subject and student’s question and the student sees the tutor’s first name and last initial. The tutor is not allowed to share personal or identifying information.
Tutor.com, the award-winning firm that launched Live Homework Help in 1999, offers more than 2,000 certified, background-checked tutors who have delivered more than 3 million tutoring sessions.
State Farm is helping to fund this service from Pierce County Library.
