Summer is officially in full swing! Now that class is out and textbooks have been returned for the year, parents might find themselves wondering how to keep their kids learning throughout the long summer months.
Whether your child is falling behind in algebra or the thought of learning a foreign language excites you, the Westfield Washington Public Library has opportunities to expand your knowledge in a plethora of areas.
Tutor.com allows patrons to access virtual tutors in over 100 subjects from the comfort of your own home. To get started with Tutor.com, visit the Westfield Washington Public Library Website, select Tutor.com under the “Resources” tab (or click this link), input your library card number, and start learning! This service can also be accessed from the computers in the WWPL technology lab.
Your WWPL library card and Tutor.com grant you access to on demand, one-on-one tutors in subjects like algebra, calculus, AP and IB subjects, world languages, and test preparations. Chances are, if you want to learn it, Tutor.com has it. In addition to tutoring services, Tutor.com also offers support for job seekers like resume review and interview prep. You can view a full list of available subjects here.
If you already have a tutor but need a safe, quiet space to conduct lessons, the Westfield Washington Public Library has study rooms available. Each study room is equipped with a large table and whiteboard. If other materials are needed, questions can be directed to the circulation desk.
Summer is also the perfect time to slip in studying for those pesky standardized tests – like the SAT and ACT. The teen department has access to SAT and ACT prep books as well as college admissions resources.
The Westfield Library Foundation partners with the Westfield Youth Assistance Program to offer in-person tutoring. Tutors meet their tutees at the library to work one-on-one in whatever subject is most needed. All tutor pairings are formed through the Westfield Youth Assistance Program and tutees must qualify for the program.
If you’re on the hunt for an easy way to continue learning over the summer, the Westfield Washington Public Library is the place to start. Stop by the library and speak with a member of our circulation team with any questions. Happy learning!
