4/24/2014 - DAVIS-MONTHAN AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. - -- The Department of Defense is funding a program for younger military dependents to help further their education.
Tutor.com for U.S. Military Families is a program available to grades
K-12 students in eligible military families that provides expert
tutoring and homework help at no cost.
"Tutor.com allows students to work one-on-one with a live tutor online
for help with homework, studying, test preparation, proofreading,
essay-writing and more," said Pamela Brehm, Tutor.com for U.S. Military
Families director of outreach and client services.
Whether the parent is active duty, reserve or guard, students can access
Tutor.com as often as needed, from any place that has internet access.
"Eligible military students have on demand access to personalized help
with tutors 24/7, 361 days a year, with no appointments necessary,"
Brehm said. "On the go students with tablets or smartphones can also
connect with a tutor using the Tutor.com mobile app."
The program will help with all core subjects including algebra, physics,
world languages, history and AP-level classes. The program is targeted
towards the younger dependents but does not exclude military members.
"Some service members and their adult dependents are eligible to use the
Tutor.com for U.S. Military Families program for help with college
courses and résumé writing," Brehm said.
Once an eligible student creates an account at Tutor.com, the student
will select a topic and the help they need. The tutor and student can
then work together in an online classroom which features an interactive
whiteboard, file sharing and instant messenger.
