The start of the school year is an ideal time to remind military families that students can get free personalized online tutoring and homework help from live experts 24/7 at www.tutor.com/military.
With tutors available to help them any time, any day in all core K-12 subjects, military students of all skill levels can achieve success this school year.
All K-12 children in National Guard, Reserve and Active Duty Military families are eligible to receive one-to-one academic support 24/7 in math, science, English and more, regardless of the service member’s branch or deployment status. Tutor.com for U.S. Military Families provides this service at no cost to K-12 military children through funding by the Department of Defense MWR Library Program, the Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program and the Navy General Library Program.
Here are some ideas for ensuring grades K-12 students in military families take full advantage of this valuable academic benefit:
Encourage students to create an account and connect to a tutor today at www.tutor.com/military. Tutor.com offers a safety net for students by providing expert on-demand help 24/7 in more than 16 subjects, including algebra, physics, history, grammar and essay writing, plus AP classes and test prep. Whenever they have questions, students can get step-by-step homework help or they can ask a tutor to just proofread their work.
Remind students about Tutor.com To Go, our mobile application that allows students to have tutoring sessions using their smart phone, iPod Touch, iPad and other Internet-enabled mobile devices.
