Did you know students can get free tutoring online — from a real-live, human person — every afternoon and evening, courtesy of Baltimore County Public Library?
BCPL has a partnership with Brainfuse.com, which offers the free tutoring to anyone with a BCPL library card. And in this age of data mining and security breaches, it’s nice to see a service that doesn’t even require the user to enter an email address.
It’s for students in kindergarten through college. They also have GED prep.
Here are some highlights from BCPL’s website:
Here’s the link aimed at elementary-school students: http://www.bcpl.info/kids-teens-parents-teachers/homework-kids
And here’s the one aimed at teens: http://www.bcpl.info/kids-teens-parents-teachers/homework-teens
On either page, click the Brainfuse link to get started.
I would say this could be a game changer for many families, but I bet the tutors would advise against that cliche.
