The Department of Defense has expanded a free, on-line tutoring service to cover all servicemembers and their families. This program, which originated with the Marine Corp and Army, has now been extended to cover all active duty service members, National Guard and reserve personnel on active duty in a deployed status, Defense Department civilians in a deployed status and their dependents.
This on-line tutoring service offers 24 hours/7day a week access to professional tutors. They assist with homework, resume writing, studying, test preparation and more. This wonderful service is made available through www.tutor.com/military.
Tutor.com offers one-on-one tutoring services that cover math, science, English, and social studies. They provide these services from Kindergarten level through high school senior level.
This is a wonderful opportunity and free service that can assist our many homeschooling families that are also military families. We often would love to ask for extra assistance. To have the opportunity to have an additional resource to help in those more difficult areas, helps relieve some of the stress of separation from our loved ones. Not to mention, it is sometimes nice to have another person that can present some material to our student in a different way than we can. I cannot tell you how many times I have “butted” heads with my son, only to have another person to present it to him and it “clicks”. This provides that opportunity no matter where you are in the world.
Please pass this information on to all the military families that you may know and if you are a military family, please check it out. You have nothing to lose.
