    Seattle Public Library and Tutor.com (a Service of The Princeton Review) are partnering as of NOW. Tutor.com has over 3,000 highly vetted expert tutors, who can help students with schoolwork, tutoring and academic coaching in a variety of subjects in a safe and secure online classroom. 1-1 help is available in math, writing, science, history, foreign languages, college essay writing, Advanced Placement (AP) courses and more. In fact, Ms. Brennan, Ingraham’s librarian, said you can even “upload an entire research paper so that the tutor can look it over and make suggestions for improvement”. 

    • Service is available 7 days a week, 2-10 p.m. in Spanish/English and 4-7 p.m. in Vietnamese
    • Students can use their microphone to communicate with tutors, we hope this will be easier for English language learners
    • Teens and adults can use this service to get help with filling out job applications and writing a cover letter and resume
