Maura helped me in all 3 subjects and did a fantastic job. She gave me more help in a few minutes than the other tutors I have tried taught me in 2 hours! - Jessica at KU
Thomas was constantly bending over backwards to accommodate my changing schedule. The response times were always “blazingly fast” like the site says, but more importantly he knows the subject extremely well. - Samuel at OSU
I had to write a character analysis of Atticus Finch from tkam. I wanted to pay someone to do it but found something better. George helped me make an outline. He showed me where to research. He gave some sources to get started. I got an 89! - Brian at Northwestern
I met with Matthew probably 20 times to get ready for my finals. I recovered from surgery for the first 6 weeks of class and needed to catch up quickly. Matthew was flexible with scheduling and knew the subject very well. - Morgan at ASU
The first meeting with Ruth went great. She was VERY of understanding of my not having a solid foundation in math and we dove into the basics together. - Angel at UF
I finally was able to break down this chapter with Gabriel in a way I could understand. He could move fast or slow whenever I needed, which helped a lot. He was efficient too, which saved me a lot of money. - Conor at USC
If you are anything like me it is fastest to just guess the answer and see what comes up wrong and then have someone explain it so you understand. Neha does all that and more. - Mia at Vanderbilt
Le Z is super patient to make sure you understand. Demand for resources, wage determination, public finance, information asymmetries, and income inequality. He broke it all down for me with the answers. - Robin at UT Austin
StudyGate helped me with so many assignments. I highly recommend it! - Robin at WSU
My favorite part of lessons with Brahmanand is when we take a very complex problem then break it down into its basic parts. This makes it WAY easier to grasp. - Ian at PSU
Nsomu has been giving me lessons for about four months. He knows the subject and helps me identify targets for improvement. Which gives me more time with my friends. - Dalton at Wellesley
Vishal is a rare teacher who can entertain and engage me while actually teaching me. He is creative and listens to me as well as polite. Truly a pleasure to work with! - Katelyn at Texas A&M

Why Parents Dislike Common Core
Everyone knows that common core is hard, but what’s the best way to approach getting help? To get help, here are the steps to make sure that your teen’s homework goes as smoothly as possible. Common core consists of specific competencies that need to be met in each subject from English to Math. Teachers follow a rubric, but common core gets especially harsh criticism for its rubric approach to math.
Take this 2nd grade common core homework question as an example: 8 + 5 = 13. Common Core deals with abstract concepts. The goal is to break down the 5 so that you can make a 10 out of 8. So you take 2 away from 5 and add it to 8 to make 10. You still have 3 left over. Add that to 10 to get the sum of 13. Common core breaks down the mental math by using base pairings of 10, and the effect is clear. But it doesn’t always work out this smoothly, and sometimes students need homework help.
The truth is that most people in a position to address common core standards like to criticize the program. They also dislike the politicians responsible for having implemented the system in the first place. The expectation for Common Core homework was that it represented an opportunity to take learning to a higher level. Students could expect to engage in a set of rigorous college-ready international standards that could prepare children to compete in a global economy. However, many people are upset that children are expected to skip rote memorization of multiplication tables. They believe that this hinders the ability of the child to master long division and fractions.
What Common Core is Designed Achieve
Students that could previously test in the 80th and 90th percentile on standardized testing now experience failure and much lower results. This results in less funding to the school districts, and the issue has the potential to snowball.
Of course, the main concern from an school administrator starts with parity. Too many states implement their own unique standards to such an extent that it’s hard to measure of students are doing well overall. Does each state have clear goals for success? Common Core is designed to solve that with clear expectations in Math and English. One huge misconception many parents have about Common Core is that it represents a curriculum. In fact, these are only standards to work by.
Regardless of how you feel about Common Core for your child, there will come a point where they need homework help. You can get that with experts who understand the system and its alternate way of thinking to make sure your child gets a good grade.
