The Mill Valley Public Library offers every patron with a library card online access to expert tutors through the HelpNow program from Brainfuse, Inc. one of the nation’s leading providers of online tutoring services.
Students in grades 3 through 12, as well as those taking introductory college courses, can access HelpNow from public computers in their local library or from home, and connect one-to-one to a trained tutor for academic assistance in math, science, English, and social studies.
Monday – Sunday: 1:00 – 10:00 p.m.
HelpNow provides library patrons with live, on-demand homework help, state-aligned skills building lessons from expert tutors, and a 24-hour writing lab. With HelpNow, tutors and students communicate in real time by typing, drawing, and marking-up lessons/web content. In addition, students may use HelpNow’s secure file sharing feature to submit their papers to our trained writing instructors any time of the day. All HelpNow tutors possess four-year college degrees, must undergo a rigorous selection and training process, and must complete a full background and security check.
