Since last spring, as Coronavirus forced everyone inside and away from others, many formerly in-person events and activities have transitioned to an online format. While it’s wonderful that technology has allowed us to keep living our lives during the pandemic, it’s no substitute for the real, face-to-face thing. But it’s going to be this way for a while longer, which is why the Library, in our ongoing commitment to bring excitement and enlightenment to the lives of our patrons, is now offering not one, but TWO new online tools for learners of all ages and interests to help spice up your education, no matter where you are on the learning spectrum.
For K-12 learners, we now offer our new Tutor.com program. Tutor.com connects students at their time of need to one of over 3,000 highly vetted expert tutors. With instant access to one-to-one homework help and tutoring, students can lower their anxiety and raise their confidence about their schoolwork. But it’s not just about helping you with your math homework and proofreading your term papers. Tutor.com offers study skills coaching to help you get organized and study smarter. And when it comes time to consider what comes after high school, Tutor.com even offers test prep for the SAT and ACT.
For continuing education, Tutor.com provides resources for adult students, including GED/HiSET/TASC test prep, citizenship test prep, hands-on Microsoft Office training, Spanish language tutoring, and tools to ease your transition back to school. If you’re looking for the next step in your career, Tutor.com has job search and resume writing assistance, so you can nail your job application and interview.
If you’re looking to further your career, beef up your resume, learn new skills, or just make sure you’re keeping your mind fresh at work, LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com) offers a library of instructional videos. Access usually requires a paid subscription, but library card holders can now access all the amazing content for free. LinkedIn Learning is an online educational platform that helps you discover and develop business, technology-related, and creative skills through expert-led course videos. With more than 16,000 courses and personalized recommendations, you can discover, complete, and track courses related to your field and interests, and for all skill levels.
With the Library as your partner, now is as good a time as any to learn new skills, improve your grades, and further your career. Stop by the Library or call 577-7323 to learn more.
