Homework Help & Tutoring

Homework Center at the Library

Does your child need help with their elementary school homework or research? Qualified volunteers offer free homework help at the Library during the school year for 2nd - 6th grade students. 

The Homework Center is open for appointments on Wednesday afternoons from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Sign up for an appointment up to one week in advance at the Youth Reference Desk. Space is limited, so appointments must be made on a weekly basis. 

For more information, call (949) 830-7100, extension 5107.

Permission Form is Required. Parents - please print and sign the permission form.  If a caregiver or older sibling accompanies your child to Homework Help in your absence, you must print and sign the permission form and have your child bring it with them to their first tutoring session. Permission forms are also available at the Children's Desk.

Tutoring

Looking for free group tutoring at the high school and middle school level here at the Library? Tutors are available during the school year.

How it Works

Call the Adult Reference Desk, up to one week in advance, to sign-up at (949) 830-7100, extension 5105, and be sure to leave your name, school, and phone number. You may only sign-up for one 1-hour math tutoring session each week.

Come prepared with questions, your textbook, a pencil, paper, and any other materials needed.

Tutoring sessions focus on learning general topics rather than completing specific homework assignments. There is no charge for this service.

Students must have a current Mission Viejo Library card to participate.

Parents - please print and sign the permission form and have your child bring it with them to their first tutoring session. Permission forms are also available at the Reference Desk.
