Children and teenagers in Henderson County never have to be stumped by a tough homework assignment again! Students from 4th grade to 12th grade and college freshmen can simply visit the Henderson County Public Library or the library’s web site at www.hcpl.org from their home computer to get immediate, free help from qualified tutors. Live Homework Help is an online tutoring service from Tutor.com that connects students to expert tutors in math, science, social studies and English via the Internet. Since the service was launched in Henderson County in October 2005, over 1,700 students have been tutored through Live Homework Help.
This free service allows students to visit the Library’s website at http://www.hcpl.org/, or come to the Library during regular library hours, and receive homework help from 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. from a live tutor via the Internet (Spanish-speaking tutors are available Sunday – Thursday, 2:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.). Live Homework Help is easy to use and library cards are NOT required. Children and teens simply log on and enter their grade level and the subject they need help in. In just a few minutes, students are connected to a tutor in an Online Classroom for one-to-one help in math, science, social studies, and English.
Students and tutors can review specific homework questions, as well as subject-specific concepts using features such as controlled chat, an interactive white board and shared web browsing in the Online Classroom. Tutors can type math equations using a special math tool, share educational web sites and much more for a rewarding learning experience. All tutors are certified teachers, college professors, professional tutors or graduate school students from across the country. Every tutor has completed a third party background check and a comprehensive training program.
