Online Tutoring Now Available for Military and Civilian Families


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON (NNS) -- With schools from Pre-K through college shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Navy military and civilian families are often navigating uncharted waters when looking for studying help for their children's schoolwork or even their own -- until now.

Thanks to the Department of Defense Military Community and Family Policy Office, the extended military family now has round-the-clock tutoring assistance through the website tutor.com at no cost.

All of this is just a screen tap away for the extended Navy family, as the service announced access is available in the latest update of the MyNavy Family mobile app.

"Shipmates, this is an incredible benefit, and we are excited to be able to put tools like this in the hands of our Sailors, civilians and their entire families," said Vice Adm. John B. Nowell, the Navy's top uniformed personnel officer. "With schools closed at all levels, this is yet another way we can ease some of the stress on our total workforce at a time they can really use it -- please spread the word."

Tutor.com dishes up on-demand academic support 24-hours a day, 7-days a week in more than 100 subjects with a full range of assistance for young children through college-level courses.

This will be especially useful for parents at home with kindergarteners through 12th graders who are currently navigating at-home learning. With less than normal access to their teachers these days, the DoD wanted to ensure that families had help available through one-on-one tutors. 

Along with their academic programs, which go beyond just homework help, they can also help with college entrance and equivalency test preparation. Services for spouses include peer coaching and professional development as well as career training assistance. 

The most significant change is the tutoring service is now open to all DoD affiliated individuals and families, including both active, Guard and Reserve service members, as well as DoD affiliated civilian personnel and their families. Also eligible are Army and Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps and Service Academy Midshipmen and Cadets.

This expanded service went live April 20 and is currently scheduled to be available through June 30.

Gaining access is as simple as going to Tutor.com/military 

Access to tutor.com and many other educational resources are also available through Navy MWR www.navymwrdigitallibrary.org/

      A lawyer representing Navy Seals who do not want to be vaccinated against Covid-19 told a federal appeals court Monday that their lawsuit over a now-withdrawn vaccine mandate isn’t moot even though Congress passed legislation last December ordering the policy canceled. During arguments before the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, attorney Heather Hacker said the service members still face the possibility of discipline over their refusal to get vaccinated and the government has not ruled out taking vaccination status into account when doling out future assignments.

      One of the questions a family member asked me: "Why is it always the Navy that is in the news when they talk about the military?" 😎 WASHINGTON — Navy divers were working to locate portions of the debris from the Chinese spy balloon that a U.S. fighter jet shot down six miles off the coast of South Carolina, defense officials said on Sunday. The recovery effort, which is expected to take days, began not long after debris from the balloon hit the water, a defense official said. He added that a Navy ship arrived on the scene soon after the balloon was shot down, and that other Navy and Coast Guard ships, which had been put on alert, were also sent to the scene.
