Another program that the library offers through is access to more than 3,000 individuals to help students one-on-one with homework and tutoring.

“We know that learners of all ages need access to real-time help, especially while many students are now learning remotely,” said Anastasia Diamond-Ortiz, director of the Lorain Public Library System. “We think caregivers and parents will find to be a great resource to help their children with homework and building skills.”

According to the library, “ provides online, on-demand academic tutoring, homework help, and test preparation to kindergarten through 12th grade students, plus early college students and adult learners.”

“Whether the student is struggling with basic math, algebra, trigonometry or even AP math classes, they have a tutor for that level; and the tutor won’t just give the student the answer, they work with the student to arrive at the solution,” said Jennifer Black, director of marketing for LPLS. “A student can turn in a book report or term paper and will give it back with notes in the margin. It’s such a great resource. I wish this was available when I was in school!”
