Homework Help is just a click away. Several local libraries have a program called "Live Homework Help"; it's an online resource where they can receive help from tutors, who are actual teachers and instructors.

The program is available to students in Davenport, Bettendorf, LeClaire and Scott County. All you have to do is go to the library's main page and find the Homework Help hotline section, then click on tutor.com and your library card is all you need to use the free resources.

Math, Science, Social Studies and English are the subjects covered by the homework help hotline.

"We really think it's a very helpful tool for our community," says Lawanda Roudebush, Director of the Davenport Public Library.

The hotline is for 4th graders to 12th graders. The online classroom is open from 4pm to 10pm, Monday through Friday.

"There is a professional educator on the other end who is helping them," adds Roudebush.

If a student needs help during other times of the day or on weekends they can still use the study aid. The database features help videos and flash cards. Grammar, algebra, history are not all the program offers, students can study for tests, such as the SAT and ACT.

"Another feature it has is the Armed Forces Test," adds Roudebush, "They can practice those tests as many times as they want and get help that way."

The library uses tutor.com, because it is a not a website, instead it is a verified database.

"The databases are all certified so they're having up to date, actual information," says Roudebush.

Money for the program comes from the library's operating fund budget. For more information on the Live Homework Help click here.
