Starting Tuesday, September 14, students will be able to book free one-on-one online appointments with knowledgeable homework coaches to receive personalized help with their homework, all from the comfort and convenience of their own home!

Homework help sessions will be offered by appointment on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Once you’ve made an appointment, a friendly member of the library staff will send you a confirmation email with your reservation details and a link to the secure meeting room for your session. Appointments are made using the free Microsoft Teams meeting platform, which allows students to video chat directly with homework coaches and share their screen for interactive help with homework.

During their appointment, students will receive the support they need to successfully complete their assignments, as coaches help solve math problems, review English essays, and help with research. While a library card is not required for homework help sessions, students can use their card to access the library’s free online websites for additional research and learning, including BrainFuse HelpNow !, ProQuest Homework Central and Britannica School.

The library’s homework coaches are caring volunteers who are delighted to help young people in our area, and many are community members with years of experience in educating and working with children. . All of our coaches have received training and background checks and are eager to help students achieve their goals.

If you are interested in volunteering as a coach in the Homework Assistance Program, please contact the Supervising Librarian of the Goleta Valley Brent Field Library at [email protected].
