Free Tutoring and Homework Help

Did you know, the Los Angeles Public Library offers free, online, one-to-one homework help? Professional tutors are available, all ages (K-12), all subjects, 7 days/week, 3:00p-10:00p. Adult learners may use the service, and Spanish-speaking tutors are included for math, science and social science. You will need a library card to access Live Homework Help, but the service is available throughout the U.S. (So if you're reading this from outside L.A., check your own library to see if it is part of the system.)

Prefer live help? The homework center at the Pacoima branch library offers trained staff and volunteers to help answer questions (grades 4-12), M/T/Th, 3:30-5:30 (W, 3:00-5:00); and the Downtown (Central) library hosts Math Mondays, 4:00-5:00, at TeenScape. (a few blocks from the 7th St. station, see "Buses In LA? No Way!").

(You can also access a boatload of academic and other courses at LAPL's online learning centers. See "Learn Something New Every Day".)
