Just in case you don't already know, let me tell you that money makes the world go round. And when it comes to homework help online, money is a major factor. Put it this way. There are any number of homework help websites available and some of them enable you to consult free tutors. But not everything is as it seems.
Whenever we see the word free, and mind tends to react. Everybody wants something for nothing unless of course there is a catch. So what do we know about the world of online homework help and about the sources of the service provided?
Basically speaking online homework help is divided into two areas -- free and not free. Generally speaking, if you want a prompt even immediate response and particularly if you want to be able to communicate one-to-one with an experienced tutor, you would expect to pay. How much you pay varies according to a number of factors but the bottom line is that type of service is not free.
So if you do come across a homework help website which does offer consultation with tutors without charge, you've either found the best deal in town or what you get is not really all that valuable.
You need to investigate and first you need to know your area of homework weakness. What part of what subject are you having trouble with? Then when you know where you need assistance, you can look for relevant online assistance.
If the type of homework help you need involves somebody explaining things, then you really do need some one-to-one consultation. Usually you have to pay for that. So if find a website offering one-to-one consultation which is a free service, you really need to put on your detective cap again. Why is the service free? And what do you get in this consultation which won't cost you anything?
It is not unreasonable to assume that if you have any experienced and expert teacher who is prepared to work directly with you online in a one-to-one situation, then the service being provided will not be free. And furthermore the quality of the service should match the fee being charged. So if you find a website offering one-to-one consultation with a tutor and charging a certain amount of money, it's reasonable to assume that you will be getting quality service.
On the other hand, if the homework help website doesn't charge for the consultation service, what sort of service are you getting? The real world and certainly the online world is very much a case of ‘you get what you pay for’.
So decide what aspect of your homework is in need of repair. Decide whether you can find answers and information simply from a Q&A section of a free homework help website. And if you do need to consult with an expert, by all means try and find one who doesn't charge. If all else fails, you may have to dip into your pocket.
