Helpster is an online tutoring application that uses your mobile device's video chat capabilities to connect you with a professional tutor. You can also choose from our large selection of qualified tutors in many different subjects, such as math and science to help you with your homework or upcoming exams.
***Please note that Helpster is a free application to download; however, it is a pay per minute application. You will only pay for the time you are getting help from a tutor and you can request a tutor at any time of the day that you need help in any subject.***
With traditional tutoring, tutors typically drive to students’ homes and tutor them on a specific subject, like algebra or trigonometry. If the student needs help with a different subject, like biology or chemistry, they will need a different tutor. In these cases, students end up with two or three different tutors coming over to their homes to receive comprehensive tutoring. Moreover, with traditional tutoring, students are required to pay a minimum one-hour fee for tutoring, regardless of the amount of help they need, even if it is just a couple of questions.
On the other hand, Helpster is the new evolution of tutoring. With Helpster, we have changed the way you think about tutors or your tutoring time. We only charge you based on the minutes you are getting help from a tutor. For example, let's say you are taking a geometry course.
Your teacher assigns you a challenging geometry problem, and you don't know how to solve for some geometric angle. You only have two options: Either pay a tutor for a full hour of tutoring or use Helpster and get help just for that problem. With helpster you can get help without ever leaving your house or meeting up with a stranger.
How Helpster works:
There are two way of connecting to a tutor.
1. You can either request a tutor by choosing a subject (i.e. Middle School Math or Science) or get paired with the first available tutor that is knowledgeable in these subjects.
Note that we have expert tutors in the following subjects for all grade levels (elementary school, middle school, high school and college)
• Math (including Pre-algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and Calculus)
• Science (including Biology, Chemistry I and II, and Organic Chemistry)
2. Alternatively, you will be able to browse our large selection of tutors in each subject (i.e. college level calculus or chemistry). All available tutors will be visible for the student to choose from. You can also chat with an offline tutor and ask them when they will be available.
Once the selection is completed, you will be paired with the tutor and you will be able to talk to them and show them the problem you are struggling with and how they solve it. They will walk you through each step and you will be able to ask them any questions as they are solving it, just like an in-person traditional tutoring.
At the end of the session, you will be able to rate your tutor and pay only for the duration of the tutoring session.
To sum up:
Helpster provides inexpensive and quality tutoring, all from your mobile device. With this tutoring app, our tutors cover all subjects in any grade level from kindergarten to university. Our tutors are very knowledgeable in high school and college level subjects. Also, they know the most efficient method of tutoring. Once you find a tutor you’re comfortable with, you can request them every time you need help.
