Online tutor service offered to students with Knox Co. library cards

Miss me? Heh. Been on vacation. Watched a lot of TV. Anyhoo, going through emails, so I'll just start posting what pops up.

The Knox County Library System is offering online tutors for local students who have library cards.

According to a release, the program provides "high quality, real-time, online tutoring and homework help" daily from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m.

You can find it RIGHT SMACK HERE.

According to the release: was made available to Knox County students in the 2013-14 academic year through a pilot program sponsored by the Tennessee State Library with Knox County Schools and Knox County Public Library. By all accounts, the program was a great success with more than 4,100 total sessions and 3,069 individual tutoring sessions. Although the state library was not able to continue to support, Knox County Public Library has continued to offer the service since the end of the pilot program.

“We are pleased to be able to continue this service for students of Knox County. With a library card, individualized help is available to Knox County students whether they are home schooled, in public schools or enrolled in a private or parochial school,” said Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett.
