Tutor.com - FREE Online Help for Military Students

The U.S. Department of Defense has launched a new service, Tutor.com, an unlimited service with private tutoring and Live Homework Help, for all active duty military service members, reservists, National Guard personnel on active duty in a deployed status, and DoD civilians in a deployed status.  Military service members and their dependents around the world can work with a certified, professional tutor online 24/7 to get help with homework, studying, test prep, resume writing, and more. Students of any age, from kindergartners to high school seniors, as well as adult learners, may use the service to connect to an expert tutor for one-to-one help in math, science, social studies and English, as well as assistance with resume writing and interview preparation.  Online homework help and career assistance are available at all military installation libraries and from any computer with Internet access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by visiting www.tutor.com/military.  For more information about the Tutor.com service contact your installation library or e-mail militarysupport@tutor.com. Also check out the Web site at www.tutor.com/military.  Students not eligible for the "military" affiliation can use this service through the San Antonio Public Library.

Tutor.com will be hosting various briefings to learn more about the program at JBSA in Sept!
