St. Louis County Library launched a new online tutoring program starting August 24. Tutor.com connects students in grades K-12 with live tutors in a safe and secure online classroom. The service is available 7 days a week from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Students can access academic tutoring, homework help and test prep assistance. Students may also upload a writing or math homework assignment 24/7 to receive tutor feedback.
Resources are also available for early college students, adult learners and job seekers. Tutor.com offers Princeton Review test preparation for the ACT, SAT, AP, and graduate school exams.
St. Louis County Executive Dr. Sam Page announced on July 23 that he would designate $4 million in federal CARES Act funding to the St. Louis County Library to establish a Digital Equity Initiative to help young people continue their education virtually. The funds are being used to provide Chromebooks, wi-fi hotspots, and virtual tutoring services via tutor.com to students and school districts in St. Louis County.
Anyone with a valid St. Louis County Library card can use tutor.com. Individuals can apply for a card online while library branches are closed by visiting www.slcl.org/content/library-cards. More details about tutor.com is available at www.slcl.org/tutor.
