• Homework Help

    Homework Help from the county library is as close as the nearest computer

    Students in grades K through 12, as well as adult learners, can connect to HelpNow from Brainfuse, a tutoring service available between 2 p.m. and midnight, seven days a week. Qualified tutors in math, science, English and social studies can help students complete a math problem, understand a

    physics concept, or revise their writing assignment – among other tasks. Essays can be sent to the Writing Lab any time via email and a tutor will provide feedback within 24 hours.

    Here are some comments from students who have used the service:

    My tutor helped me finish and review my college essays and gave great feedback!

    The tutor took the time to explain the problem in detail and would repeat how to solve the problem differently each time.

    This program is especially great when it’s like 10:30 at night, and I realize I forgot to do my homework, and I need help getting it done! Thank you!!!!

    To try it, go to www.aacpl.net and click on Homework Center to access HelpNow from Brainfuse and other databases such as Biography in Context, Science in Context, and Student Resources in Context. Librarians can also provide help using the Internet and looking up information.
