Need a Tutor but Don’t Have the Funds for Expert Help?
 
FLORENCE, AZ – It has never been easier to find and access information using the internet.  While our young people are developing and honing their critical thinking and research skills, there are new resources to help them with school work.  Best of all, there are no fees or charges so the help is free to users.  Tutor.com is a site that helps students of all ages with homework, studying, projects, essay writing and test preparation in every subject, including algebra, statistics, chemistry, physics, social studies and English.

Adults can get help with resume writing, GED prep, and academic support.  All sessions are online and one-to-one with a live tutor.  Any community member with a library card can access the new online services from the library or from the comfort of their home.  The service includes a real-time writing center and 24/7 access to worksheets, videos and tutorials in just about any subject. 

The live, online tutoring and resume writing service is available every day from 1:00 PM to 10:00 PM. 

Students and adults signing on for the first time can create FREE account that allows them to store assignments, notes and more.  The site just added a mobile feature for Tutor.com users for access from mobile devices such as certain smartphones and tablet devices.

Tutor.com is free to all Pinal County residents.  You will need a library card to access most databases from home.  Contact your local library to get a free library card (for a list of locations, click on this shortened web link:  http://goo.gl/nexiJ).

To enter the database library, follow these steps:
  • Get out your library card and fire up your computer.
  • Go to www.pinalcountyaz.gov/library.
  • In the lighter green bar at the top, click on RESEARCH.
  • Click on the topic that interests you such as Tutor.com under Homework & Student Resources.
  • Enter your library card number.
Patrons of the Casa Grande and Apache Junction libraries can also access the online databases through the library site at www.cglibrary.org or www.ajpl.org.  The steps to open the databases are slightly different when entering the catalog through these websites.
