Our mission is to create and support an environment where reading is valued and resources are provided
in order that all community members know how to read and do read.
The Monrovia Public Library is proud to provide an online resource, Brainfuse’s HelpNow, which offers free live tutoring every day from 1-10pm (except holidays) with trained professionals across the country. It has a writing lab where students can upload a draft of their report and a tutor will review it and respond within 24 hours with feedback.
They offer tutoring in English or Spanish. They serve K-12 and college students in a variety of subjects, including: English, math, social studies, Spanish, science, writing, biology, chemistry, history, and other topics. The subjects covered differ by grade level. They also offer SAT & ACT test prep as well as accuplacer tutoring (the pre-college placement tests HS students can take for higher course placement in college).
