K-8 Live Online Homework Help Now Available

Schedule a Free Virtual Session to Help Your Students Succeed!

Students are now able to schedule free, online one-on-one appointments with knowledgeable coaches to receive personalized help with their homework, all from the comfort and convenience of their homes!

Homework Help sessions are offered by appointment on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Sessions are either 30 or 60 minutes long and can be scheduled through the online form on the Goleta Valley Library website Request Homework Help page. Once you schedule an appointment, a friendly library staff member will send a confirmation email containing your reservation details and a link to the secure meeting room for your session. Appointments are held using the free meeting platform GoToMeeting, which allows students to video chat with homework coaches directly and share their screen for an interactive learning experience.

During Homework Help sessions, students can get help with their homework assignments or receive general subject-specific practice to boost their skills in science, math, language arts and social studies. From assisting with math problems to looking over English essays, our coaches are happy to provide students with the support they need to complete their homework with success. Students can also learn to use the library’s free online homework help resources for additional research and learning, including BrainFuse HelpNow!, ProQuest Homework Central and Britannica School, which can be accessed through the library website anytime for around-the-clock academic support.

The library’s Homework Help coaches are caring volunteers who are excited to help our area youth, and many are community members with years of experience in education and working with children. All of our coaches have received training and background checks and are looking forward to helping students reach their goals.

A Goleta or Santa Ynez Valley Library card is not required to request a Homework Help appointment, although one is needed to use BrainFuse HelpNow! and ProQuest Homework Central. Click here to sign up for an eCard, or stop by the Goleta, Solvang, or Buellton libraries in person to register for a physical card during Sidewalk Service hours on Wednesdays through Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

If you would like to volunteer as a coach in the Homework Help program, please contact Goleta Valley Library Supervising Librarian Brent Field at bfield@cityofgoleta.org or (805) 690-5137 for details and to receive an application.
