    1.  Fort Wainwright home school families are invited to meet to share ideas

    Live Homework HelpR by Tutor.comT is a free, live, online tutoring service
    available in English and Spanish 24 hours a day, no matter where you live.

    How it Works:
    Army affiliated students submit a one-time registration (at right) to obtain
    their CYSS pass code. Students can then use it to log in from home or from
    the CYS Services Youth Technology Lab. They enter the grade level and
    subject they need help in. They are then connected to the first available
    subject expert tutor in an online classroom. Students and tutors work
    together in an online classroom using controlled chat and an interactive
    white board. Students can send computer files, such as essays, to the tutor
    for review and assistance. They can also share educational websites.

    Educational support is available for Kindergarten - 12th grade and college
    Subjects supported are all grade levels of math, science, English, and
    social studies.

    science, biology, chemistry and physics), social studies and English

    A Safe Online Environment:
    Tutors undergo a criminal background check and a reference check before
    being hired by Tutor.com. They are prohibited from asking any personal
