Central Coast Council Libraries are assisting students to get through the gruelling last weeks of 2017 exams and assessments with the homework help service called Studiosity.
Previously known as YourTutor, the free online service has a new name and look, but is still providing the same high-quality online support for students.
Council’s Director Connected Communities, Ms Julie Vaughan, said that thanks to Studiosity, students are able to obtain quick and beneficial feedback to maximise their results and keep anxiety at bay.
“Students can gain study tips to use their time efficiently and effectively, as well as ask questions that they may not feel comfortable directing to teachers, parents or friends,” Ms Vaughan said.
“The moment students need help with a homework question, essay or study tips, there is a real-life, expert local tutor just a click away.
“What makes Studiosity unique is that it employs a strict ‘no answers’ policy, using online chat tools and interactive whiteboards to provide guidance so that students can gain the skills necessary to solve similar problems in the future.
“Essay and report writing feedback is also available, allowing students to upload files and receive professional advice within 24 hours – perfect for end-of-year essays and written exam practice,” Ms Vaughan said.
Studiosity is available for students in years 3-12 from 3:00pm to late, Sunday to Friday, and employs a mix of teachers, university academics and other professional experts.
Students can obtain assistance with all core curriculum subjects.
Central Coast Mayor, Clr Jane Smith, said, that as a teacher herself, she understands the importance of accessible study help for all students.
“This incredible free service from our libraries allows all students to obtain additional help if needed,” Clr Smith said.
“Thanks to the new Library Management System, which was launched in October, Studiosity is now also available to library members who previously joined through Central Coast Libraries South.
“To help celebrate, Studiosity have extended their service to include tertiary education support for TAFE and first year undergraduate university students studying statistics, economics or accounting for the remainder of the year,” Clr Smith said.
TAFE and university students can access Studiosity from 7:00pm to 10:00pm, Sunday to Thursday.
