Sacramento, CA — The state is now offering an experimental program with free online homework assistance, and virtual tutoring services.
It is a 24/7 pilot program being spearheaded through the California Library System and involves the state’s 1,130 local public libraries. Students can receive online help in math, language arts and other core K-12 subjects. There is no age limit on who is eligible for the service.

The program was announced by Governor Gavin Newsom, who argues it will help the youngest Californians “get a strong start.”
The Governor’s Office further explains, “Live, real-time homework assistance from tutors familiar with state curriculum and standards is available 24 hours a day by laptop, tablet, or phone from tutors familiar with state curriculum and standards.”
