HelpNow provides free tutoring sessions from 2:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m., seven days a week. Tutoring is provided for elementary through college levels in math, science, reading, writing, and social studies. A session will last for 90 minutes. If a patron needs additional time, they may log into another session with the tutor as soon as time runs out. The online tutoring classroom is set up with a shared electronic whiteboard and chat box. The whiteboard comes equipped with the appropriate subject tools. For example, a lengthy math equation can be entered with a click. Files and photos can be uploaded to the chat and whiteboard. For ESL users, language can be changed in your chat box while the tutor’s will be unchanged. When the tutoring session is over, the chat box conversation will be emailed. Each tutoring session is recorded. Patrons can find recorded sessions stored in the Message Center.

It will not edit your paper, but will give suggestions on how it is written and what the writer should be looking at. When the paper is sent back, user will be able to find it in the Message Center.
