Homework help goes online
Doing homework can be tough for students - and their parents.
But TVOntario's Ask A Teacher website is taking some of the
pain out of the chore.
TVOntario's Ask A Teacher website provides high school students
with free, detailed, real-time homework help from certified
Ontario teachers, and an approachable space where they can
practice concepts learned in school.
Students have access to some great features, including:
- Ask a Teacher Chat Rooms, available Sunday to Thursday,
5.30 to 9.30 pm E.S.T., where they can take part in real-time
one-on-one tutorials with teachers.
- The Brain Bank, where they can find thousands of practice
exercises, questions and answers, and a Super Glossary of
terms in science, math and English.
- The Essay Feedback service, launched in February 2005,
where they can receive helpful comments on their work from
The Ask A Teacher website has been live since May 2001, and
receives an average of 10,000 visits each month.
RBC has been involved with the Ask A Teacher website since
2002, and in 2005, we announced that we will donate $225,000
over three years to promote the site widely to children, adults,
and teachers across Ontario, and to make it accessible to
more and more students who need homework help.
