Free Online Tutoring for Military Families

WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Free and unlimited tutoring in a variety of subjects ranging from secondary education mathematics to resume writing is now available online for all service members and their families.

A new service provided by the Department of Defense matches youths and adults with certified, professional tutors at
http://www.tutor.com/military-programs. Tutors can assist students in more than 16 subjects - from kindergarten to college-level calculus, statistics and physics - as well as state standardized tests and the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and American College Testing (ACT) exams. The website always matches one student with one tutor, an individual certified in the student's subject and level of education. Students and tutors will meet in an interactive workspace through a chat session. An uploaded book report, for example, can be opened in the workspace, allowing both student and tutor to review the material. Specialized workspaces for subjects such as math or chemistry include toolbars with functions for creating equations, charts and graphs.
