  • Preparing for Semester Exams

    live homework help - free online help from real tutors logo

    It’s time for high school semester exams!

    If your students need additional assistance “cramming” for exams, recommend Live Homework Help. Live tutors are available…for free…seven days a week from 2:00 pm to midnight. Tutors can provide individual instruction in math, science, English, and social studies. All students need is a Library card and access to the internet.

    Here’s what students are saying about this service:

    “I am so thankful that this service is offered. It is there to give me individualized
    help when no one else can. I will definitely be back again.”

    “They answered my questions really fast and asked me questions until I understood everything exactly…
    I really liked that!”

    “This is really great! I have been working on things with my teachers, and this just helps even more!
    All of my friends use it too! Thanks!”

    Good luck on exams!
