Hey there teens. Here is to hoping that everyone is doing their best to stay safe and healthy during this unprecedented and trying time. While school is happening in the home, I do want to provide some information that may be of some use to help with your studies.
Not long before the library closed, I had the awesome chance to visit both Peekskill High School and Peekskill Middle School. During my visits, I brought over lots of information about online learning resources. With the current situation what it is, now would be a good time to remind everyone of some of those resources.
One of the resources I have been championing is Learning Express . This resource has free practice standardized exams (SAT, PSAT, ACT, etc.), career interests surveys, tools for finding a job, ebooks, and subject tutorials. This service is free when you sign up using your library card. All you have to do is visit the link, sign up, and make a free account. When we can get back in the library, I would love to host a class to show of some of the program’s features, so stay tuned.
Another service that is available is Tutor.com/westchester. If you have a library card in the Westchester Library System, you have a free account to Tutor.com. I;ll say that again louder: If you have a library card in the Westchester Library System, you have a free account to Tutor.com. With this account you have access to free, on-demand tutoring for multiple class subjects. Need a paper proofread? Need help solving a math equation? Want help understanding a science concept? Tutor.com has you covered.
If you are a high school student, and you want to stay on top of news and current events, you should be aware that the NY Times is free to you though July 6. For more information click here.
I will keep you all posted as we continue to move forward. Stay safe and see you soon.
