Homework can be tough, even for parents.
So to help, the state has teamed up with Alabama Public Library Services to provide online homework assistance.
“At times she does have problems with her homework," says Veranda Cook.
Like many parents, Veranda Cook, has been out of elementary school for quite a while.
This is why she’s seeking tutoring services for her 9-year old daughter, Alaysia.
“Most of them I'm able to answer and a lot of them I'm not because I've been out of school for a long time,” says Cook.
“In this economy people need as much help as possible," said Bettye Forbus, Director at Houston-Love Memorial Library.
And helping people is what is all about.
Forbus says, “We have subject specialists on every topic that would be based on that student’s curriculum.”
The program is free of charge to all Alabama residents.
“They will walk you through the thought process of how to do a particular problem,” said Forbus. runs Sunday through Thursday from 3 to 10pm.
“Whenever you see elected officials thank them for a good use of your tax dollars that benefits everyone in the state of Alabama.
As far as Cook's daughter partaking in the program...
“She would love doing anything where she's on the computer whether it's work or games.”
Library staff is also available to help with the Homework Alabama website.
