Customer demand driving force behind Mac Development
NEW YORK, NY – April 17, 2007– Tutor.com announced today that Live Homework Help, the leading after-school service that connects a student with a professional tutor for live, online homework help is now available to all Mac users. Students using Safari or Firefox (2.0 or higher) browsers on Mac OS X can now connect to an expert tutor seven days a week for the help they need through participating local public libraries.
Students using Macs connect to tutors the same way PC users do and the online classroom experience is identical. Students on PCs or Macs simply log on to the library’s Web site using their library card number and click on the Live Homework Help link. Students choose their grade level and the subject they need help with, and are connected to a professional tutor in just a few minutes. In the interactive, online classroom the student and tutor chat via instant messaging, diagram problems on two-way, real-time whiteboards, browse the Web together for resources and information and even share files to review.
Over 1,600 library sites across the U.S. and Canada with different technical environments and diverse communities offer Live Homework Help. Tutor.com received feedback from individual libraries as well as several of our statewide Live Homework Help programs that Mac support was essential to ensure that every student in the community had access to this valuable service. Listening to customers, Tutor.com’s internal development team was able to launch the Mac compatible version of Live Homework Help ahead of schedule.

"We are excited to bring libraries and more of their customers access to this important service and we’ll be carefully gathering feedback for future development projects that continue to bring libraries and students the best after-school homework help service available."
