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.
Through its sponsorship, the Shire of Augusta Margaret River has 4 x 3-day passes to give away to some lucky members of our community who would like to attend the Margaret River Readers & Writers Festival.
Drop into the Augusta Library or the Margaret River Library to fill out an entry form.
Prizes will be drawn at 4pm on Thursday 1st June, and winners notified by phone.
Due to scheduled maintenance, many of our online services (including our catalogue) will be unavailable from 10am – 7pm on Sunday 21st May.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
