              3 things I learned

              1. There are many resources for educators to use in the classroom, not just resources for supporting student learning outside of the classroom
              2. You can watch past, prerecorded tutoring sessions sessions in the Best Sessions tab
              3. All tutors are OCT certified Math Teachers

              2 ways Homework Help can be used to support learning in your community

              1. Creates equitable access for all students to use the same resources and educational supports (for example: tutoring services)
              2. Educators are able to use a flipped classroom method of watching tutorials at home as pre-reading for lessons to help facilitate learning in the classroom the next day

              1 question you might still have

              1. What are the wait times like for students during peak hours of usage for the online tutors?
