Going online to get educational help is not a new idea. However, constant innovations to the ed tech industry means that more students than ever are logging on for tutoring services. With many looking for quick and easy help as opposed to full-blown tutoring services, micro-tutoring has become a popular option. Studypool is a site that has revolutionized this learning concept.
As a student, there have been several times that I have become confused when learning something new. However, after a short explanation from the professor or one of my peers, the fog cleared and I was able to understand. Throughout my academic career, when I struggled with a specific question, I wished for an option to get a short explanation. As a college student, I didn’t have the finances or the time to invest in a full-blown tutor. Many students seem to have the same issue, which explains the rising popularity of ‘micro-tutoring.’ I found Studypool to be the perfect solution when you don’t need the entire subject rehashed, but simply want certain issues explained to you.
Studypool is an online service that connects students to a network of qualified tutors that are ready and willing to help out in a variety of subjects. The company has made it extremely easy to sign up. Whether you decide to create a login or login using your choice of social media channels, you can be signed up and connected in a matter of minutes.
Upon logging in, you will have access to an extremely user friendly question posting interface. Once you post your question or topic that you need help with, tutors will immediately be able to bid on your question. Within minutes of posting, you will have access to choose a tutor that you believe is the best fit. Before choosing a tutor, you can check out their educational backgrounds and credentials, as well as ratings from their past clients.
One of the biggest draws to using Studypool is the affordability. You can post a question for as low as a $1. You can pay a bit more to make your question a priority, which will get you help even quicker. However, even with paying this extra priority fee, Studypool is still one of the most cost-effective micro-tutoring option on the Internet. Another big draw is the ability to remain anonymous when getting the help you need.
Many students, like me, prefer to learn at their own pace. Studypool allows for you to choose your level of expertise. For example, this is perfect if you are pretty knowledgeable about a topic but want a certain issue explained a bit more. Tutors will understand your level of expertise and won’t waste any time rehashing stuff you already know. Whether you are a student or a professional in the workforce, Studypool can be a valuable resource for helping you widen your understanding of almost any topic.
Just like with any service, there are some areas for improvement. Studypool does have a few subjects that are not as broadly covered as others. For example, the site lacks in foreign languages. However, the company is constantly looking to improve and is working to hire more foreign language tutors to fill the gaps.
All in all, Studypool is a great resource for affordable and effective micro-tutoring. I recommend this service to all of my peers and colleagues. Get the help you need quickly and fuss-free without paying for things you don’t need. Get answers to your questions within minutes without leaving your computer screen. Studypool is reinventing the way students and professionals think of tutoring and online learning.
