Although the school year is winding down students have more to accomplish before the summer break; taking exams, writing research papers, and pouring over homework assignments.

Now would be a good time to go to the library website (www.bossierlibrary.org), access Tutor.com, and end the year with better grades.

Being able to study online from home is what Tutor.com is all about. In addition to the convenience of working from home other benefits include: “Live one-to-one help; being able to access and review your previous online sessions; and setting up a locker where you can upload, organize and access your Tutor files.

Hiring a tutor can be costly, but Tutor.com is free with your library card. Homework help for students from kindergarten through college is provided by experienced tutors who are experts in their field. You can talk with or text them during the following times: K-College, Sunday – Thursday from 2p.m. – 10p.m.; Adult Education and Career Center, Sunday – Thursday from 10a.m. – 10p.m.

Another great tool is Tutor.com To Go for those with an iPad, iPhone & iPod Touch. Android and iOS7 users can download a free app for these devices.

There are many practice tests available for high school students and adults such as: college entrance exams; graduate school entrance exams; the HiSET; ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery); Civil Service Exams, NET (Nurse Entrance Test), and CLEP (College-Level Examination Program). Click on the “SkillsCenter Library where tutorials, practice worksheets, videos and other resources for careers are available too.”

Use your library to move to the next level in your educational career. The resources are free and available with your library card.
