This should come as really good, or maybe even great, news for parents of middle and high students in the EVSC (Evansville Vanderburg School Corporation). It would seem that the days of us parents trying to help our kids with their homework are over. Thanks to a new partnership between the EVSC and the EVPL (Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library), students in grades 6-12 can now receive free online tutoring.

  2. Create or sign in to your free Tutor.com account.
  3. Click on "Connect with a Tutor."

Once signed in, your student will have access to content experts that will provide help with homework, help to improve their writing skills, help students study for a test, and more.

If you've ever tried to help your kid(s) with their homework, you know how challenging it can be (for us parents), for a couple of reasons.

  1. Schools don't teach things the way they used to. The methods are way different and more complicated.
  2. Our kids are way more advanced than we were at their age. I think they're learning calculus in kindergarten these days. How are we supposed to keep up with that?! I'm exaggerating just a wee bit.

Truth be told, I couldn't tell you the last time I was able to be of any help to my kids in regards to their school work - they don't even bother asking me anymore.

Relive 1980s Elementary School Gym Class

If you are a Generation X or Millenial like me, you likely have some strong memories of gym class. Either you loved it or hated it. I made some fun memories and built character and muscle, but I'm really glad I never have to go back and face some of these things again! And I know my teachers did their best to make gym enjoyable and teach us life skills. They succeeded - this is all in good fun. And, hopefully, future generations will get to thoroughly enjoy some of these as much as I did!
