One-on-One Homework Help Available at the Dayton Metro Library

Students can find friendly, free assistance with school subjects and homework assignments at the Dayton Metro Library. The Rock Your Homework program connects students of all ages with trained AmeriCorps service members at the Northwest and Madden Hills Branch Libraries in Dayton. The program may be expanded to the Trotwood Branch Library as well. Parents or students should call 937.396.9578 to inquire about availability, or email

Rock Your Homework service members and volunteers can work with students to:

  • Review school assignments
  • Offer feedback on projects
  • Suggest effective study skills
  • Guide students in the use of online learning tools

“Sometimes students just need some focused support with their school work, and that’s not always easy for parents or caregivers to provide,” said Amanda Arrington, Volunteer Manager for the Library. “Rock Your Homework has proven to be extremely helpful to many students - from those who need help with one particular project, to those who benefit from ongoing support.”

Rock Your Homework can be especially helpful in connecting students to the expertise and resources that are available to them. HelpNow from Brainfuse is a free online resource available through the Library’s website, offering lessons, video tutorials and practice tests.

“The best thing about HelpNow is that it provides live, on-demand tutoring with experts,” said Arrington. “Our Rock Your Homework service members can facilitate the use of this tool so that students get the most out of it.”

To inquire about Rock Your Homework availability, call 937.396.9578 or email Rock Your Homework is currently offered at the Northwest Branch Library, 2410 Philadelphia Dr., and the Madden Hills Branch, 2542 Germantown St. in Dayton.
