Expert tutors help you finish your homework, study for tests and write essays (read more about Tutor.com). Use a whiteboard and chat box (with optional audio), share files, even drop off a math problem or essay. With an account, you can tag and reconnect to your favorite tutors, store your assignments and documents in your virtual locker and go back to review your previous sessions when studying. Start with a video overview and a practice session. Live tutor sessions are for elementary, middle and high school students only, two sessions per week. The SkillsCenter offers subject quizzes and other self-study tools (such as The Princeton Review's preparation for AP, ACT, and SAT exams) that are always available and do not count against your weekly limit.
