On September 1, Cranston Public Library launched a new program that offers students of all ages live, one-to-one help from professional tutors online. Any community member with a Cranston Public Library card can access the new online services from the library or right from home on any computer or mobile device connected to the Internet. In addition to on-demand tutoring, Tutor.com provides homework help, test preparation and writing assistance for students in grades K-12 in over 40 subjects.
Practice quizzes, worksheets and the SkillsCenter Resource Library are available 24/7. Tutors are available from 2-10 pm.
All of this is available to any Cranston Public Library cardholder. Start exploring Tutor.com today by setting up your account at tutor.com/cranston. For added convenience, try downloading the app (iOS/Android) and logging in with your account information.
Up until August 2016, the Office of Library and Information Services provided Tutor.com to Rhode Island libraries through AskRI.org. However, due to budget constraints, the service was cut. Tutor.com has been purchased and made available to Cranston residents through a collaborative purchase made by the Cranston Public Library and the Cranston Public School Department.
