Tutor.com Introduces New Learning Suite

Tutor.com (www.tutor.com) has launched the new Tutor.com Learning Suite (www.tutor.com/libraries-education/products/k12-center) to thousands of libraries across the country. After almost a decade of offering one-to-one, online tutoring and homework help, Tutor.com's expanded product suite includes services for the entire community, including the many American adults who find themselves searching for jobs, writing resumes, and going back to school during this difficult economic time. Along with the Live Homework Help program, library card holders of any age can now obtain real-time writing assistance and resume help using the ProofPoint Real-Time Writing Center and access to vetted resources in the 24/7 SkillsCenter Resource Library. The new Learning Suite is being featured at the American Library Association's 2009 Annual Conference.

The Tutor.com Adult Career Center includes one-to-one help designed for adults who are conducting a job search and need help with resume strategies as well as writing a resume or polishing a cover letter. A new and unique proofreading service, ProofPoint allows adults to have their writing reviewed one to one with a tutor in real time rather than waiting a day or longer for a marked copy to be returned via email. Adults may also access the new SkillsCenter 24/7 to find resume guidelines, job search guidance, and interview tips. Through a partnership with Career Solvers, Tutor.com is also offering online resume writing workshops throughout the fall.

Beyond job search, the Adult Career Center will help students preparing for the GED or going back to school with one-to-one assistance in math, science, social studies, and English. Adults getting ready for the citizenship test may connect with a social studies or English tutor to prepare for that test or use resources from the SkillsCenter to find practice exams, explanations on how to register for the test, and more.

Powering this suite are new technologies delivered in an interactive, online classroom built using Microsoft Silverlight technology and designed for learning with an interactive whiteboard featuring a large collection of drag-and-drop tools for math and science sessions and the ability to share documents and browse web resources in real time with a tutor.
