FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Just in time for the start of a new academic year, Forsyth County Public Library will launch a free, web-based, on-demand tutoring service for students of all ages with Tutor.com.

Beginning Aug. 1, anyone with a library card can access this free service inside the library or from home using any computer or mobile device connected to the Internet. The service will be available daily from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Tutor.com provides access to live, one-to-one tutoring, a real-time writing center, test preparation, practice quizzes and 24/7 access to worksheets, videos and tutorials in over 40 subjects.

“Tutor.com is offered at more than 2,000 public libraries across the country and we’re proud to offer the service free of charge to students and adult learners in our community,” said Library Director Anna Lyle.

Tutor.com also provides assistance for using Microsoft Office and preparing for college entrance exams, Advanced Placement exams, ACT/SAT and GED/HiSET.

Students or adults working on essays, book reports, short stories and college or scholarship application essays have two ways of getting work reviewed by Tutor.com’s WriteTutor experts: live, on-demand tutoring in an interactive, online classroom or through Tutor.com’s 24/7 Drop-Off Review service.

Additionally, job seekers at all levels can use Tutor.com to work with professional job search coaches in a supportive and encouraging environment for help with job searching, online applications, resume writing and interview preparation. Job seekers also have access to resume templates, cover letter samples, online job search tools and career advice in the Tutor.com Career Center.

“Beyond offering daily homework help and test preparation for students, our patrons will find value in the additional services Tutor.com can provide for job seekers and for students who want to improve their ACT/SAT test scores without paying fees for private classes or tutors,” Lyle said.
