Homework Help Printable (** for premium members only)
When you’ve googled till your fingers are numb, and all your searching still hasn’t provided an answer to your homework question, it’s nice to know that there are real people out there who can help. Here’s the scoop on teachers, librarians, experts, authors, and fellow students who will answer your most perplexing homework questions via email, forums, and web chat.
All Experts: Homework Help
Calling themselves “the oldest and largest free Q&A service on the Internet,” All Experts boasts a network of a thousand question-answering volunteers. Find an expert by navigating through the subject directory. Clicking on your topic (such as Geography or Spanish), you’ll be presented with an annotated list of volunteers. Each expert has a profile with ratings and comments from previous question askers, so you can choose your volunteer based on past performance.
PATH: Pupils Ask, Teachers Help
Via email, live chat or message boards, PATH provides three ways to ask to a volunteer teacher for help. The message boards are divided into separate forums for different grade levels and subject areas. The busiest forum sections are High School Math and College Physics, but elementary grade subjects are listed first, so be sure to scroll down to your proper level. The boards are quite well moderated, and off-topic posts are minimal.
Pitsco’s Ask an Expert
Ask an Expert is a yellow-page directory of experts, listing more than three hundred volunteers
able to answer questions on topics from artificial intelligence to zoo keeping. Click your way
through twelve categories to find your subject matter (for example, under Science and
Technology I found three geologists). To avoid bothering the volunteers with repeat questions,
you should first review each expert’s website, where you just might find the answer you are
looking for. If not, you can email your question directly to the expert.
