Eurobodalla students have access to free one-on-one online help with their homework and study outside school hours this year.
Made possible thanks to bushfire recovery funding awarded to Eurobodalla Libraries, online tutoring service Studiosity will be free for Eurobodalla students – from year 5 to university level.
It offers two types of help: writing feedback, where students can upload any writing draft and receive feedback to improve their work, and ‘connect live’, providing immediate help via online chat with trained academics.
Eurobodalla Libraries coordinator Samantha Fenton said the beauty was that Studiosity could help local students when and wherever they needed it – after school, on weekends and/or during the holidays.
“Eurobodalla Libraries is really excited to be able to offer Studiosity to our local students free of charge,” she said.
“Last year was so chaotic for our kids – this is one way we’re able to support them in 2021 to ensure they get the best start.
“We’re confident students who try Studiosity will love it – and parents will love it even more.”
Students must be a member of Eurobodalla Libraries to utilise the service. Access is through an online portal – all students need is their library member number and password.
The initiative is thanks to funding from the Australian Government’s Disaster Recovery Funding Program.
