(Miami, FL – August 17, 2018) As kids in Miami‑Dade County begin a new school year, the Miami‑Dade Public Library System will be helping students achieve academic success with the launch of the MDPLS Homework Help and Tutoring Program.
Certified teachers will provide students in grades K‑12 with free homework help and tutoring in reading, math and science at 18 library locations throughout the county beginning on August 25. One‑hour tutoring sessions will be held at participating branches on Saturdays at 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and noon.
“This is another example of the great services provided by Miami‑Dade County to help our children and their families,” said Miami‑Dade County Mayor Carlos A.
