    One of the most valuable resources we have to offer students is Live Homework Help.

    Sometimes when students are away from your classroom and fervently completing their homework assignments, they encounter obstacles. When this happens, students should know that they can use their Howard County Library card to access a live tutor seven days a week from 2:00 pm to 1:00 am! Tutors are available to help students in fourth through twelfth grades with math, science, social studies, and English.

    Just who are these tutors? They are certified teachers, college professors, professional tutors, graduate school students, and undergraduates from top universities. Their job is to work one-on-one with students via the internet. Tutors are trained to teach the material, not simply spoon-feed answers, so you can be sure that your students are learning and practicing the material from your classroom, not just taking the easy way out!

    Tutors use robust electronic tools, like interactive whiteboards for geometry diagrams. With a bit of advanced notice, they’ll review student essays and reports.
