How online tutoring is supporting our troops

In the past 2 months, as kids have gone back to school, we've launched over 80 new programs through libraries and schools across the country to serve hundreds of thousands of more kids. But this one's a bit different and special.

We recently launched a program with the US Marines. Over 50,000 school-aged kids are stationed with their families at bases around the world. They have homework every night too, and often their parents are not around to help.

Now, every kid on a Marine Base worldwide can go to http://www.usmc-mccs.org/ and get immediate one-to-one help from a live expert tutor, 24/7. A link on the right side of that page will take them to the Marine's library services subscription to Tutor.com's Live Homework Help: http://www.usmc-mccs.org/library/tutor/index.cfm.

You can read more about this great program from the perspective of Marines at the Leatherneck News, at the School Library Journal, and at the Tutor.com Press Page. Any thoughts and comments are welcome,
