Mobile Homework Help Available With Tutor.com To Go

May 12, 2011

School-age students in search of live homework help through The Indianapolis Public Library’s online homework site now have a new tool to access the service. Tutor.com To Go is a new mobile education app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch that connects users to an expert tutor for real-time homework help.

With Tutor.com To Go, users can receive one-to-one help in math, science, social studies and English daily from 4 – 10 p.m.; take a picture of a textbook to share with a tutor; save and review past sessions while studying for a test; store essays, assignments, or photos of homework problems; search thousands of resources in the Tutor.com library, including videos, worksheets and practice tests; and access saved sessions from a computer.

The Tutor.com To Go app can be downloaded for free at www.tutor.com/togo or through the App Store. Users will need a Tutor.com account to use the app, which can be established with an Indianapolis Public Library card by visiting any of the Tutor.com program links on the Library’s web branch at www.imcpl.org. The new service will supplement the existing online service from the Library’s web branch which has been available since 2006. It has seen Marion County students in grade school through college log nearly 30,000 sessions with online tutors.

In July 2009, Tutor.com expanded its service to help adult job seekers by connecting them with career specialists for help in writing a resume or cover letter, searching for a job online, or preparing for an interview. This online service is available in Tutor.com’s Career Center daily from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. Another service, available 24 hours a day, is the SkillsCenter Resource Library which offers resources to supplement an individual’s academic or career pursuits, receive job search tips, and review GED and citizenship test prep materials.

Tutor.com services available through The Indianapolis Public Library are made possible by the Library Fund, a fund of The Indianapolis Foundation, through a grant to The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation.
