New name, same great homework help

Central Coast Council Libraries are assisting students get through the gruelling last weeks of 2017 exams and assessments with the fantastic homework help service, 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, Julie Vaughan, said 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 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 it employs a strict ‘no answers’ policy using online chat tools and interactive whiteboards to provide guidance so students 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.”

Studiosity is available for students in years 3-12 from 3pm 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 and for any subjects not listed, students simply select ‘Research’ or ‘Writing feedback’ to ask their question.

Council Mayor Jane Smith said 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,” Mayor Smith said.

“Thanks to the new Library Management System, which was launched last month, 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.”

TAFE and university students can access Studiosity 7-10pm, Sunday to Thursday.
