Palisades Library Offers Free Subject Tutors for Students

This past summer at the Palisades Branch Library, teen volunteers were available to work with younger students. Because of the success of the program, this free service will now be available during the school year, too.

According to Librarian Annie Cipolla, there will be at least one teen volunteer tutor stationed at the Homework Zone tables adjacent to the information desk in the main reading room. That tutor(s) will be available from 3 to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday at 861 Alma Real Dr.

“For those unfamiliar with Homework Zone, the library provides free printing (normally $0.25 a page), most school supplies and now, free tutoring for students, grades 1-12 who sign into the Student Zone,” Cipolla said. “Please contact me if your student needs specific tutoring help—we have students who are strong in math, science, English and writing.”

There is extended computer time to allow students to complete their homework and a librarian is available at the Information Desk to provide research support.

Today, Wednesday, September 7 from 3:30 to 5 p.m., Cipolla will offer a workshop on how to locate and use the library’s 180 databases, including “Live Homework Help,” which offers remote live support from subject specialist tutors from 3 to 10 p.m., seven days a week.
