Working with a tutor on Tutor.com is easy. If you want to share a math problem you can simply take a picture of it with your device and upload it so that the tutor can see what you’re working on (click “share file”). The tutor can then talk you through how to solve the problem (just click “Start Audio” once you’re connected with a tutor). You can even share your screen with the tutor so they can see exactly what you are working on. If you especially like working with a tutor you can mark them as a favorite, so if they are available the next time you log-in you will be paired with them.
Want feedback on a paper you’ve written? You can upload it to Tutor.com to receive detailed feedback within 12 hours! You can also drop off a math question to receive step-by-step instructions on how to solve it (sent to you within 24 hours). This resource has so much to offer to online learners.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer this service to our patrons, especially now that so many students are doing their work from home” NCDLC Administrator Sandra Collins said. “We hope that patrons of all ages will take advantage of this free service for library members.”
