All CPS students now have access to Tutor.com through the Cranston Public Library’s website (this service was formerly available through AskRI.org).
Students just need to type in their Cranston Public Library card number to access Tutor.com. Library cards are free and can be attained at any public library throughout Cranston.
Tutor.com is available from 2-10 pm every day, and students are connected via chat with live tutors in the subject area in which they need help. Students receive individual, personalized assistance at no cost through this service, and no personal information needs to be entered by the student. In addition, Tutor.com provides test prep, essay editing, and practice problems and quizzes.
More information about tutor.com can be found on the Cranston Public Library’s Website.
