Building Your Child’s Literacy Skills

Parents and teachers know that children who are read to at an early age become confident, capable readers. Reading to your child just twenty minutes each day helps encourage language skills, stimulate curiosity, and prepare for success in school.

Have a child with a specific interest like race cars or horses? Need help finding the right book to interest your young reader? Have a school project deadline coming up? Just ask and we will be happy to help you locate just the right books either on our shelves or available through the South Central Library System.

Live Homework Help® for students and adult learners

Online tutors are available on demand, every day from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. for one-to-one help with everything from homework to skills building and test prep. Professionally trained and experienced tutors will help students in kindergarten through 12th grades with math, science, English and social studies. Tutors will help adult learners with their GED, adult education courses, grammar help with their resume or a work-related project, and more.

How it works

The student and tutor communicate in a virtual classroom via IM (instant messenger). Live Homework Help® also uses two-way white boards, which are especially helpful for math and science problems.

Through Live Homework Help®, the tutor sees the grade level, subject and student’s question and the student sees the tutor’s first name and last initial. The tutor is not allowed to share personal or identifying information. With your Black Earth, Mazomanie or Dane County library card, you may get free Live Homework Help® every day, 2 to 9 p.m.

Wisconsin Heights School District's Live Homework Help® is funded entirely by the Madison Community Foundation. Click on the smiley logo to get started.
