What is Tutor.com? Tutor.com is an online tutoring service that provides homework help, live tutoring, test preparation, and career resources.
How does it work? Students and patrons are able to log in with their PINES library card and have access to a live tutor (over 3,000 subject experts speaking both English and Spanish) 7 days a week between 1pm-8pm. Students and patrons will enjoy unlimited use, unlimited sessions, and K-12 and college content.
What does it offer? Over 100 subject areas are featured, including test prep materials and career and job resources. Live tutoring sessions can be recorded and saved for review, contain a live chat feature, and have options where students can submit essays and papers for review. College students have access to SAT study courses and prep materials and parents have access to information about colleges, FAFSA forms, and other college-related resources. There is a section with GRE, MCAT, LSAT, ASVAB, and AP exams and job-seeking adults can even receive resume and cover letter assistance and chat with a career coach. There is also a section for those preparing for the GED or citizenship test.
This robust service will assist students currently attending school, parents helping teach students at home through virtual learning classrooms, recent graduates looking for test prep assistance and college resources, and adults searching for employment. The service is adaptable for any smart phone or device so patrons can gain access from the library's parking lots, where WiFi still remains free and available 24/7.
