New this year, the Goleta Valley Library will be offering free Intergenerational Afterschool Homework Help on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 – 6:15 p.m. starting October 15, for children in Kindergarten – 5th grade. Volunteer tutors and Library staff will be on hand to help kids with their homework along with the assistance of an online product called Brainfuse HelpNow, which provides access to live tutors who can help answer problematic questions. No reservations are needed, this is a drop-in program. The Library will try to pair up the same tutor with the same student so that they can build a relationship that goes beyond homework help. For more information, or if you are a senior citizen and would like to volunteer to be a tutor, please call the Library at 805-964-7878.
Brainfuse HelpNow can also be accessed here on the Library’s website (have your library card number handy). Live online tutoring is available from 1:00 – 10:00 p.m. daily.
