HelpNowLogo 0Learners of any age have access to an extensive library of lessons, video tutorials, and practice tests that are available 24/7 from HelpNow. Live tutoring assistance can be accessed by clicking the “Get Live Help” button during tutoring hours, 2:00 - 11:00 p.m. seven days a week.

Especially useful for middle and high schoolers who are proficient in online interaction, HelpNow tutors guide students through homework challenges and help them develop the necessary skills to complete assignments on their own. Tutors help users master core academic skills through state-aligned lessons, including the Common Core.

“This is an incredible service for all the students in Dayton and Montgomery County,” said Steve Moser, Teen Services Coordinator. “It will provide homework help and tutoring services for those who can't make it to the Library, and even after we’re closed for the night.”

HelpNow provides unique services for each of the three main sources of learning—expert instruction, peer-to-peer collaboration, and independent study in these general subject areas:

“HelpNow offers many study tools to work with,” said Holly Varley, Collection Development Director. “Students decide how they want to acquire a skill or grasp a concept, and this service gives them the resources to master it.”

HelpNow is located in the Research Tools tab on the Library’s homepage and is accessible anywhere there is an internet connection. Users need a Dayton Metro Library card and PIN.
