Live Homework Help
Open every day from 1:00 to 10:00 p.m., the Live Homework Help
program connects students with qualified tutors for free, online help
with school assignments.
Tutoring is available--in English and Spanish--in four content
areas: math, science, social studies, and English. Tutors do not
provide answers to questions or problems, but rather guide students to
find answers for themselves. Students can use Live Homework Help as
often as they like.
A non-Mac computer connected to the internet, along with a San
Diego Public Library card and PIN number are all that's required to
access the service. (To obtain a library card and PIN, visit any library branch location
.) Optionally, the service may be accessed from city libraries without entering a library card number.
