Students who have a question about solving an algebra equation or formulating a thesis statement for an English essay can get live homework assistance and connect to what they really need - a tutor who can walk them through finding the solution to their problem.

How it Works
The service is available seven days a week from 2:00 pm through 11:55 pm, Eastern time. Students, Kindergarten through twelfth grade, and adults seeking to improve their skills, can use the service as often as they wish and receive help in math, reading, science, social studies, English/language arts, and writing.
Connecting to a tutor is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Students simply:
1. Enter their library card number on the Remote Patron Authentication screen.
2. Select a grade level.
3. Select a subject: math, reading, science, social studies, English/language arts, and writing.
Students are then immediately connected to a tutor in the Online Classroom where they can chat, co-browse the Web and share files such as essays or reports, or work in the interactive white board which features a suite of robust drawing and math tools. Students who create a login can connect to their favorite tutors and review past sessions whenever they wish. All students can print their sessions and share them with a teacher, parent or guardian.
HelpNow tutors are trained and certified by Brainfuse. All tutors have been cleared through background and reference checks, must possess a four-year degree, and have prior teaching/tutoring experience. All tutors are US based.
