HomeworkKansas provides expert tutoring in core subjects to every Kansas student, Grades 4-12. HomeworkKansas, a service of the State Library of Kansas, allows students to connect to an expert tutor for one-to-one homework help. Tutoring is provided by a live tutor via the Internet. Students simply go to the HomeworkKansas webstie at http://www.homeworkkansas.org/ and enter their Kansas library card number. Students can register and receive a Kansas Library card number instantaneously at the same site. To better match students and their homework needs with the best available tutor, students are asked for their grade level and their homework topic. The student then enters the online classroom and, using chat technology and an online whiteboard, the tutoring session begins. All tutors are certified and have completed a third party background check. Tutors are available seven days a week from 4:00pm-11:00pm and from 4:00pm-9:00pm, Sunday-Thursday in Spanish.
