The Seattle Public Library expands online homework help

The Seattle Public Library has expanded its online homework assistance service in English and Spanish to include support for immigrants, job seekers and college students, in addition to K-12 students.

Online Homework Help, a free online tutoring service, allows Library patrons to get immediate help from qualified tutors by visiting www.spl.org and selecting "Homework Help" from the "Quick Links" menu. Choices of service include "Student Center," "College Center" and "Career Center." The Student Center offers assistance in math, science, English and more. The College Center provides help with various subjects as well as college entrance exam help. The Career Center contains job search resources and citizenship test preparation assistance.

The Seattle Public Library cardholders can use the service from Library computers, in school or at home. Online Homework Help is available from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. every day, in both English and Spanish.

"Online Homework Help gives us another way to serve the needs of the community, whether at home or in the Library, whatever is most convenient for the patron," said librarian David Christensen.

All Homework Help tutors are certified teachers, college professors, graduate school students and other professionals from across the country.

Online Homework Help is powered by Tutor.com and made possible through a generous grant provided by The Seattle Public Library Foundation.
