TORONTO, Oct. 1, 2012 /CNW/ - 11,335 math questions were solved last week thanks to free online math tutoring for Ontario students. Homework Help has re-opened its digital doors for the school year to support Ontario math students in grades 7 to 10.
Homework Help (ontario.ca/homeworkhelp) provides online math resources at no charge for Ontario students, including 1:1 tutoring with Ontario Certified Teachers five days a week: Sunday to Thursday from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm ET. Students are able to interact in real time with an experienced math teacher, working together on a shared screen until students understand their math homework. Online math resources available on the site also include videos, online tutorials, and digital lockers to help students overcome math challenges.
The online tutoring service consists of more than 250 Ontario teachers, who help students work through math questions they have for homework. Approximately 600,000 students have access to the program and are able to receive free online math help. The program helps students to understand math concepts they may be struggling with, building their math skills and confidence.
"Math skills are essential to the future success of Ontario's workforce, and Homework Help supports this by providing students with personalized online math resources to complement their in-class learning," said Sarah Irwin, Managing Director of the Independent Learning Centre (ILC).
