What happens when your child needs assistance with her math homework that you just aren't able to give? Her geometry or Algebra 2 assignment might as well be in Swahili and she is pleading with you for help. First step, Relax. There is help and it is easy to get. Next, take out your library card, go to your computer (or one at the library), and go to the website of the Library System of Lancaster County or any member library. Look for the "Live Homework Help" icon shown above and click on it. You will be asked to enter the number on your library card. Select "Live Homework Help" from a list of online resources. You will be asked for the subject and grade level and within a few moments you will be connected to a trained tutor who will assist your student in understanding her homework. If you have ever used instant messaging software, the process is quite similar. The tutor won't do the homework, but will assist your child in understanding how to do it. Tutoring is available in math, science, social studies and English in grade levels 4-12.
It's free, it's easy, and it's convenient and it's available @ your library.
