Need tutoring help for students?  Get HelpNow at Stillwater Public Library

MEDIA RELEASE • For Immediate Release

help now

For many parents, helping their children with homework requires a bewildering reeducation in subjects and skills like fractions, diagraming sentences, geometry and physics.  The Stillwater Public Library will be showing students and parents how to get free, home tutoring on all of these subjects and more through its HelpNow service on Saturday, Sept. 21, from 1:30-3 p.m.

HelpNow is a comprehensive set of online academic and tutoring services designed to support many learning styles from kindergarteners to college students. It provides live, online help from qualified tutors who can assist with homework questions, essay writing and building academic skills.

The class will provide an overview of the HelpNow features and highlight the different study options. HelpNow is for use inside the library, and outside the library with a Stillwater Public Library card.  It is free and available 24 hours a day, with live tutoring available from 2:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

“HelpNow includes a ton of services, but the highlight is the live tutoring,” said Lynda Reynolds, library director.  "Its tutors are based in the United States, undergo background checks, must have earned a four year degree and have past tutoring experience.  It’s the service I wish I’d had when my children were in school.”

Parents, teachers, and students are invited to the free class, though participants do need to bring their Stillwater Public Library card.  Participants will be using computers to follow along with the class.  Ten library computers are available for use and twenty other participants may bring their own laptop or tablet.
