The Las Vegas-Clark County Library District’s web site at www.lvccld.org has a special Homework Help section that can be used from home, at the library or from school. A library card and a computer with Internet access is all that is needed. Just select Homework Help under Quick Links on the Kids or Teens pages to find information on a variety of subjects organized by subject and grade level.
In addition to web sites, databases and other resources to help with a research project, write a report or complete an assignment, the Homework Help page offers HelpNow from Brainfuse, an online tutoring site that can be accessed through the button that says “Online Tutors & Tests.” The site connects to a live tutor, and students can work with the tutor in the subjects of English Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies and Writing.
The Skills Building feature on Homework Help allows students to interact with tutors to understand the broader concepts of the subjects they are studying. The Writing Lab gives students the opportunity to submit their writing to a tutor and receive expert feedback.
At the Test Center, students can take practice standardized tests such as SAT and ACT, as well as practice subject specific tests. Receive online help with foreign language homework from fluent foreign language tutors at the Foreign Language Center, and use 24/7 to submit questions any time of day and receive a response within 24 hours.
Explore Brainfuse’s HelpNow when your child needs professional homework assistance. This secure site is a free resource through the Library with your library card! For more information, call 734-READ or visit www.lvccld.org.
