MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Homework Louisiana is offering online tutoring to help students with their assignments as they return to school.

This program features one-on-one tutoring for more than 60 class subjects. Students in Pre-K through college can get help with math, English, computer literacy, or science. They can even get help preparing for the SAT and ACT.

Libraries statewide have partnered with the program to make it accessible to students throughout Louisiana. Anyone with a Ouachita Parish Public Library card can access this service. The staff said this is something useful at a time when many parents are homeschooling their children.

“We find that a lot of parents are now taking on the role of teacher. Something that they’re not prepared for. Homework Louisiana is really great because it helps parents learn how to teach their children. Learn how to answer those questions they have no idea how to handle,” said OPPL communications coordinator Danielle Tolbird.

All tutors are certified with a master’s degree in their subject and are hired by Tutor.com. In addition to tutoring for students, there is also career coaching and resume building for adults and college students.

Tutoring is from 2 p.m. to midnight daily. If you have a positive experience with a tutor, you can request them the next time you log in.

“The library wants parents to know that we’re here to help you. We’re here to help your child. We believe that literacy and education is incredibly important. That’s why we have resources like Homework Louisiana, like our books, like our E-books,” said Tolbird.

Ouachita Parish Public Library has free wifi and computers for the public to use. They are limiting computer time to 30 minutes per person.
