A refreshingly simple concept for providing on-demand homework help is taking the educational world by storm.
Menomonee Falls, WI -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/08/2012 -- The founder of AceMyHomework.com, Said Mirza, is no stranger to problems faced by college students across the United States. While tutoring students at Arizona State University, Said saw the need for quality homework help. Students did not have time during their busy schedule to go and get help from traditional tutoring services. Students were struggling to understand complex homework assignments and were increasingly using the internet to get help. Said realized this was an opportunity to help students by providing a website where students could ask questions and get instant homework help. Scholars could compete via bids to help students out and in return get paid to do homework tutorials from home. This website would allow students and scholars to get and give help via an online auction system. Thus, AceMyHomework.com was born.
AceMyHomework.com is a website that connects students with scholars from around the world. Students simply post questions they are having trouble in as well as the amount they are willing to pay. Scholars then submit bids to provide tutorials to students. Students can then review the bids and message scholars to decide which scholar they want help from. Once a student decides to select a scholar, they simply award the project to them. After the scholar delivers the tutorial, students can review it to make sure they understand the tutorial before releasing payment. Using this model, AceMyHomework.com is a hit with students and scholars alike. Students are happy to get homework help online without having to waste time and money getting tutored. Scholars like the service because it allows them to do homework tutorials for money from home. It is a win-win for everybody.
Opponents argue that AceMyHomework.com is a platform for cheating. Said strongly disagrees with them saying, “Most students are looking for genuine help.
There are some students who will probably use this for cheating but that is human nature. Anything can be used for beneficial and harmful purposes. Ultimately, cheaters are only hurting themselves.” A long-time scholar on AceMyHomework.com remarks, “Students are looking for a no-nonsense approach to tutoring. They want immediate tutoring and these tutorials are a great way for them to understand the concepts in their free time.”
Said believes the website will continue to grow in popularity as people hear about it. “Students are increasingly getting frustrated with the education system. Teachers are more focused on research than students. Students need help and do not have the time to go get tutored about a whole subject when they are looking for help on solving a specific problem. I learn by thinking through the solution rather than by someone explaining it to me. This is especially true for mathematics.” A student who has been getting help from AceMyHomework.com since it started said, “I was having a hard time with my Math 101 class and the professor was not very helpful. We had over 200 people in our class so the teacher did not have time to help me out. On this website, I can message scholars anytime I want and get help within minutes.”
Another unique thing about AceMyHomework.com is its verification process for scholars. Scholars have to go through a strict verification checks before they are allowed to provide tutoring services on AceMyHomework.com. Solving a math problem is one thing but explaining why it was solved a certain way is the real challenge. Said personally reviews the credentials of scholars and judges their past work before letting them on the site. Scholars with advanced degrees in Math, English, Computer Science, Biology, Chemistry and many other subjects are registered on the site. This sort of help normally costs hundreds of dollars but because of the bidding model costs a lot less. As more and more students and scholars join, AceMyHomework.com is sure to change how we educate our children.
