New clothes, backpacks, lunch accounts, supply lists, classroom “donations”…The cost of each new school year can quickly drain your wallet. Thankfully, the library can help you save some money while also helping your kids save themselves from extra stress.
Private tutoring and tutoring centers are expensive, but for many students, the one-to-one attention a tutor provides can make a huge difference in their school performance and their confidence. Give your students a leg up without spending an arm and a leg by introducing them to Tutor.com through the library.
Tutor.com provides on-demand, one-to-one tutoring in an online classroom for students in kindergarten through college in over 60 academic subjects and test preparation areas, including the ACT and SAT. The Tutor.com Learning Suite also includes practice quizzes, skills drills, video lessons and The Princeton Review Essentials test preparation. Tutors are available every day from 3:00pm to 12:00am CST. To access the service, students should visit www.tutor.com/rpl. If accessing the service outside of the library, a library card may be required.
