Ensuring that students of all ages have access to high quality academic support, Live Homework Help is a free online tutoring service that offers one-on-one assistance with math, science, social studies, English, and Spanish.
Open to students in Kindergarten through first-year college and adult learners, Live Homework Help is available to anyone with a Los Angeles Public Library card seven days a week, from 3 to 10 PM. This resource can be accessed through any public computer in the Central Library and 72 neighborhood branches as well as any computer or remote device with Internet access.
Outside of public schools, the Library has the most frequent contact with students of any public institution in Los Angeles and has the greatest organizational capacity to serve them. Live Homework Help offers the assistance of more than 2,000 English and Spanish-speaking tutors who work from their home or office located throughout North America. Tutors include certified teachers, college professors, and professional tutors, all with proven subject experience in the fields they tutor. All tutors have passed criminal background checks and comply with the Children’s Online Protection Act and Children’s Internet Protection Act. The student and tutor communicate in a virtual classroom with chat and two-way white boards, which allows tutors to help students develop their academic research abilities, and hone their problem solving skills.
