What is YourTutor?
It’s online, one-to-one help for students in years 3-12 with homework and study questions, a free service offered by the Shire of Augusta Margaret River libraries.
Students can get help with questions in maths, writing, English, science and more, by connecting to a network of qualified subject experts on-demand, or by uploading a written file any time for feedback within 24 hours.
The YourTutor ‘online classroom’ includes a typed chat with a live tutor, an interactive whiteboard where you can draw with the tutor, and the ability to share links and files for review.
When and how?
Live tutors are available Sunday – Friday, 1pm – 10pm or you can upload your writing draft 24/7 any time you like, and your file will be returned to you with helpful feedback in less than 24 hours.
