iHelp: Live Homework Help Goes Mobile
Not only is it free, but the largest and highest-rated online tutoring service has gone mobile with the introduction of the Tutor.com To Go™ iOS app for the iPhone, iPod, and iPad.
As one of the valuable database resources the Birmingham Public Library provides, Tutor.com has partnered with Boopsie, a leading global mobile platform used by universities and libraries, to allow libraries and patrons who subscribe to the service to access a live tutor anytime and anywhere.
Covering subjects such as Math, Science, Social Studies, and English, Tutor.com provides worksheets, lessons, study guides, and videos to help any student improve academically. It also utilizes what is known as “gamification,” which integrates game dynamics in order to boost participation and incorporate a “fun” element with learning.
In addition to the homework assistance platform, Tutor.com provides tutoring and career guidance programs. Birmingham Public Library patrons can access exam materials in preparation for the SAT, ACT, GED, civil service exams, and graduate school entrance tests. The program also allows research for local open jobs, resume and cover letter samples, guidelines for interviews, and other materials valuable to job seekers.
The Tutor.com network boasts of more than 2,000 professional tutors and career specialists to assist with homework, GED preparations, and career guidance. For more information about the Tutor.com To Go ™ app for the iPhone, iPod, and iPad, please go to www.tutor.com/mobile.
