In those situations, there is online help for students so they can solve a homework problem with a tutor and understand the steps. If you live in Los Angeles County and have a library card (you will need your library card number), free help is just a click away. For grades K-12 and for basic college courses, services are provided by, an agency that employs thousands of work-at-home tutors who are background and skill tested. Between the hours of 3 PM and 10 PM daily, one can further develop his or her math, English, science, and social studies. You can even study for an exam or correct a paper with a live English tutor. Resources, such as these, are a great asset to you and your child!
