Taking some pressure off parents...
“How do you calculate the volume of a sphere?” or “What’s the difference between an element and a compound?” are probably not questions you want to hear at the end of a long day.

Parents often say that helping their child with homework in the evenings can be stressful. Students can get frustrated, tension can be high near exam times, and for some parents it has been a few years since studying those subjects themselves.

The library provides free yourtutor access - online, on-demand help from real-life local teachers and tutors. This means that when a student has a question in maths, English, writing, the sciences and more, they can get some guidance, without needing to ask mum or dad. The online tutor will never ‘give’ an answer, students will build confidence, critical thinking, and come to an answer independently, and parents are relieved of the pressure to be ‘subject experts’ after-hours.
Students can sign up for their own library member card number to sign in for free, from the library or from home. http://yourtutor.com.au/watch
