Tutor.com’s Live Homework Help® featured at Launch of
Dallas Public Library’s New Teen Centers
NEW YORK, June 16, 2009 - Tutor.com’s Live Homework Help® service, the company’s flagship one-to-one, online tutoring and homework program is being featured today at the Dallas Public Library’s celebration of their new Teen Centers at the Dallas West Library. Every branch library in the City of Dallas will have its own Teen Center thanks to a $500,000 grant from the AT&T Foundation. The grant funds laptops, materials, digital cameras, workshops and programs. Students using the Teen Centers will have access to Live Homework Help from public access computers or remotely from their homes with a library card.
Tutor.com has been providing online tutoring and homework help to Dallas-area students since 2006. Tutors have completed over 10,000 sessions with local students – helping them complete assignments, build confidence in their academic abilities and improve their grades. On demand help from a certified tutor is needed more than ever as students contend with rigorous standards including four years of math and science courses to graduate from Texas public schools.
“We’re always glad to see corporations like AT&T funding the invaluable programs public libraries offer their local communities,” said George Cigale, founder and CEO of Tutor.com. “Libraries are an important part of a student’s education and we’re thrilled to continue our partnership with Dallas Public Library as part of the new Teen Centers.”
Tutor.com will provide more help for K-12, college and adult students and job seekers this July when the company launches the Tutor.com Learning Suite. New services include the K-12 Student Center, College Center and Adult Career Center. Each center features one-to-one live, online tutoring, ProofPoint™ for real-time writing and resume help and the SkillsCenter™ Resource Library which includes thousands of vetted materials including step-by-step tutorials for students who choose to work independently. The SkillsCenter also includes resume templates and tips as well as financial tools for adults managing household budgets.
