Mount Clemens Public Library is pleased offer online homework help in over 40 subject areas from qualified tutors through Tutor.com.  This new service is available for students enrolled in grades K-12 or the first two years of college.  Any cardholder from our library may access the free tutoring service online between the hours of 4 p.m. and 11 p.m. daily.

How does it work? Just sign in to the Tutor.com site with a library card and pin number.  Click on the button to connect with a tutor and answer a couple of questions about your grade level and the type of homework assignment you are working on. You will then be placed in a virtual classroom with a qualified tutor for your subject area and grade.  As you chat with the tutor, your session will be recorded, and you and your parent may review the recording or transcript of your tutoring session at any time.  You may also upload reports, research papers and other assignments that you are working on to have a tutor review them and make suggestions for improvement.

Tutor.com is free to use, and it operates in a safe environment. Tutors are thoroughly tested in their subject areas before being employed by Tutor.com. They will not give answers to students, but will guide them through the material and help them to understand it and reach answers on their own.  Only first names are  used during sessions, and tutors never have contact with students outside of the virtual classroom.

Explore Tutor.com by clicking here, or use the Tutor.com button on the left side of the library’s web page.

Download E-books Free!

Summer is a great time to take advantage of the library’s downloadable e-book collection.  Whether you are at the beach or relaxing in a hammock in your own backyard, you can use your library card to select from thousands of current and popular titles in our e-book catalog.  All you need is a library card and an Internet-connected personal device such as a tablet, laptop, smartphone or e-book reader.

Click on the Downloads link on our library web site menu and select Overdrive E-Books and Audiobooks.  You’ll see a full catalog of fiction and non-fiction for all reading tastes.  To manage your selections more easily on portable devices, download the Libby Overdrive app from your app store.

As always, your library staff will be happy to answer any questions you have about using this free service.

Happy Reading!
