The Bermuda National Library has launched Tutor.com, a new online resource for students of all ages, Minister of Community, Culture and Sports Wayne Scott said today [Nov 21] in the House of Assembly.

Minister Scott said, “Whether you just need a little hint to get unstuck or you need someone to explain the concept a bit slower, Tutor.com can help.

“Anyone with a library card can log into the website at www.bnl.bm and connect with an expert tutor for a 20 minute session.

“No appointment is needed and tutors are available from 3 p.m. – 11 p.m., every day, even on most holidays!

“We all know that sometimes it can be difficult for students to get the type of support they need to be successful in school,” the Minister added.
