We have curated some free resources for parents, caregivers, and youth of all ages that we hope will help you as the school year begins.
Two of the online resources we would like to highlight are Tutor.com and Learning Upgrade. These resources offer opportunities for students to supplement their learning in a variety of subjects and to track their progress. Tutor.com offers 1:1 interaction with a live tutor through chat and email. Learning upgrade offers a subject placement test that tracks a student's progress and comprehension through a series of benchmarks.
The following are some employment resources available for free through the Westchester Library System as well as through educational organizations.
