“HELP! I’m stuck on my homework”: StudySoup Has a New Tool for That!
Have you ever been working on a set of homework questions and found that you’ve been able to figure out the answers to all of them except one?
We’ve been there ourselves. It’s even more frustrating when your professors and class TAs aren’t available to walk you through the concept.
To help you be a better student, we’ve created a Homework Help Tool designed to help you get the answers to your hardest questions faster. Your homework questions will be answered by expert Teaching Assistants on StudySoup in real time in almost any subject!
What can I use the Homework Help Tool for?
The Homework Help Tool allows student questions to be answered in real time. Questions can be academically based in a specific subject like biology or algebra. You can either attach photos of a problem or type out a question using your phone, laptop, or tablet.
Who will be answering my questions?
We’ve hired a team of highly qualified Teaching Assistants who specialize in specific subject areas. Only graduate students and adjunct professors get chosen.
How long will it take for me to get an answer to my question?
Most questions are answered within one hour, but some hard questions may take up to 24 hours to complete.
Which types of questions work best for this tool?
Our goal is to help you get a better understanding and a better grade in a class.
You can get help with:
- Homework questions that you don’t know how to answer
- Getting your work or essay reviews to make sure all of your answers are correct
- Multi-step complicated problems
- Difficult concepts you don’t fully understand
What’s the difference between a basic question and an advanced question?
Basic questions are those that will likely take less than 30 minutes of a teaching assistant’s time to answer and or to check your work (example basic question).
Advanced questions are those that are a little bit tougher and involve step-by-step answers. These will typically take an hour or more of a teaching assistant’s time (example advanced question).
What if I don’t understand the answer?
Don’t worry, we won’t leave you hanging. You can keep talking to our experts until you are satisfied and fully understand the concepts. If needed, we can even set you up with a personal mentoring session.
Why don’t I just Google my question?
We’re big fans of the Google ourselves, so we understand that can be an option for some easy questions. However, we know how stressful and scary studying can be, so our Homework Help Tool was specifically designed to ensure that your question is answered correctly, accurately, and immediately.
We’ll also make sure that you fully understand a concept and are prepared for upcoming assignments and exams.
What if I would just rather go up to someone in my class and ask them instead?
Great! We encourage that because collaborative learning is awesome! We also know that classmates aren’t always around to help. This tool was specifically designed for study situations when you need the help of a real expert.
