Have you checked out Tutor.com yet?  Westland residents can get FREE homework help from a live tutor.  I just tried it and got help solving a quadratic equation.  It was quick and easy and all around pretty amazing.

To access tutor.com, click here: http://westlandlibrary.org/research#hh and select Tutor.com from the list of available homework help options.
