When classroom time and after-school hours aren’t enough, New Jersey students can now turn to the Internet for free one-on-one tutoring.
“Homework Help NJ,” a new State Library program sponsored by PSE&G, was unveiled this week at the Newark Public Library and given a test run by a sixth-grade class from Burnet Street School in Newark.
The program will allow students from grades 4-12 with a library card to receive real-time help from a tutor on math, science, social studies and English assignments. The online tutoring help is available to students in Camden, Elizabeth, Jersey City, Newark, New Brunswick, Paterson and Willingboro.
Students who don’t have computers at home can access the on line help through the library or at after-school classes offered by NJ After 3, a statewide nonprofit organization whose programs serve more than 15,000 children.
