LIVE Free Homework Help!


How It Works

Online tutors are available on demand every day from 11 a.m to 11 p.m. for one-to-one help with homework, skills building and test prep.

Professionally trained and experienced tutors will help students in Kindergarten through 12th grades, and adult learners, with math, science, English, writing, foreign language and social studies.

The student and tutor communicate in a virtual classroom with chat and two-way white boards.

You can use the service from Los Angeles Public Library Internet Access computers, or, with your LAPL library card, from your own computer.

Live Homework Help also offers help for Spanish speaking students in the subjects of math, science and social science.




Congratulations to the entire VAS community for receiving a 6 year accreditation from the WASC visiting committee! A huge thank you to all the teachers, staff, students, and parents who participated and helped to make the process successful!
