Studypool allows students to collaborate on answers for different assignments, questions, and papers. First, students are able to post to a question with a time limit and price range. Next, different tutors will bid on the question and the poster gets to choose whose help they want to hire. Essentially, tutors are bidding for jobs by posting the best response to the question. While this is an unconventional method for tutoring, it may be a good option for college age students.

The Good

  • 24/7 Accessibility
  • Certified Tutors
  • Live Tutoring Sessions Available

24/7 Accessibility

Students are able to post questions at any time of the day. Once their question is posted, tutors bid on the question to get the job. Since it's all online and jobs are completed through posting questions, students are able to receive help at all hours of the day. Studypool makes it easy for students to find help for their questions. Studypool also provides a "notebank" for those students looking for quick or personal study help.

Certified Tutors

Studypool holds each tutor to high standards. In order to become a tutor for Studypool, you must have a higher degree or be a college student. Tutors are able to work on their own time and bid on questions in their area of expertise. A highlight to Studypool's system is that tutors will bid on questions they are experts in, so students know they are receiving professional help.

Live Tutoring Sessions

If posting a question isn't enough, students are able to schedule a live tutoring session. This extra help allows students to work with a certified tutor for more in-depth assistance. Students are able to get more help on a specific subject and dive deeper into a topic than one question would allow.

The Bad

  • Undisclosed Pricing
  • Limited Pool of Students
  • Unclear Subjects

Undisclosed Pricing

Since students choose the price range for their questions, pricing changes from question to question. It simply depends on how much the student is willing to pay. However, students could be spending more per question than if they went with a monthly subscription service.

Limited Pool of Students

Studypool is centered around students posting questions and tutors bidding on them. While this is a good option for college aged students, this system would not work for most high school or younger students.

Unclear Subjects

Once again, since this platform is based on questions asked by students, there is no real subject structure for students to turn to. A student could post a question in a subject matter that no tutors are trained in, therefore receiving no help.
gavel

The Bottom Line

Studypool provides a unique tutoring platform geared toward college aged students. Students post questions and wait to receive bids from tutors. While this may be a convenient form of help for college students, it seems as though it would not be the most effective method for younger students. We recommend looking into Studypool for college aged kids, but suggest looking elsewhere for more structured tutoring programs for younger students.

This site delivers a pleasant experience. They easily connect you with the best possible tutor. I had a problem with a payment that was charged twice, the same tutor told me to reach out for support and it was resolved in less than an hour.

The journey in the field of tutoring in studypool has been easier than I ever thought. There are lots of students posting questions of different subjects so I only place a bid in the questions am sure of answering. I can pick as many orders as possible and I become my own boss. There is no limitation in the number of orders a tutor can pick, this has made my work even more enjoyable.

Studpool is by far the best online tutoring account to work with; they value their students and have great consideration for their tutors. The earnings are on the higher side when comparing with other platforms. I was a private tutor before the pandemic hit and schools closed, and since then, I've been working with the students on Studpool. It has created a means of income for me. I can't regret. Helpful and worth the time I have spent on it. Thank you, Studypool :)

I've worked with Studypool for about 4 years now total, and I can confidently say its one of the most worthwhile jobs I've had. It's a great way to make money while also helping students + learning something new everyday along the way as a tutor in subjects you already love. I get to tutor in Geology from home - seriously, couldn't be a better set up.

Studypool is a great service for students and tutors to use. With an easy-to-use platform, Studypool can be used by students to have any questions they have answered while also providing tutors with excellent sources of work. The way that Studypool works is what I love about working at Studypool. I have been working at Studypool for a little over a year now and I love the flexibility I have in making my own schedule and completing assignments that best suit my expertise. Studypool has a feature where it tells you whether or not you need to reply to a student, a tutor, or when to submit answers, making them highly reliable and accountable. I love working here and will continue to do so for a long time!

StudyPool enables tutors and learners to work together, whereby students can access learning help and materials conveniently. The tutors are experienced, courteous, and extremely helpful to students in need of help with their studies. The tutors provide comprehensive answers and are always available to update you on the status of your task. They will also revise your work if in need of amendments. In short, you get value for what you pay. I highly recommend the platform to anyone seeking help with their academic work.

Studypool is a great platform for student-tutors to earn cash by sharing their knowledge. The working hours are flexible and the payment is fair. Dispute handling is fair and the overall site is user-friendly. Hard-working tutors are appreciated and rewarded with benefits.

Studypool is a decent tutoring platform found on the internet. A decent number of students to tutor from, lots of tutoring subjects to choose from, a quick sign-up process and a fair evaluation system. Many tutoring platforms have existed through the years, however this one has proven to be one of the few honest, reliable and that has delivered all of what is stated.

My experience was pretty good. As a new student on the platform, and currently taking a few AP courses, I do need help with some smaller tasks that I thought an online tutor could help me with. The way SP is set up is that they let me choose who I want to work with which is great because I get to choose my own price, but I do believe the more expensive you go the better tutor you get which makes sense. I kinda disagree with the overall feedback on this page because it mentions that pricing is undisclosed, which isn't true, students pick their price so basically we have more control which is better.

Studypool is a great platform to earn extra money. It is important to keep in mind that your earnings are directly proportional to the amount of time and effort you spend. The platform itself works very well and the rules are very clear. Occasionally you may get a difficult student, but for the most part, it has been a positive experience

I always believe that Studypool prides itself with accurately verifying the academic background of its tutors. Nobody can easily lie about these information. This is the reason why I feel very secured whenever I get help from Studypool. And I crunch every time I get an incredibly well-written paper and my conscience forces me to pay extra for a job well done. I always get good quality work with Studypool.

This being my last semester, I must give a shout out to the tutor team at Studypool. There's nothing as stressful as having to juggle between a crammed semester and a busy work schedule. A friend of mine told me about Studypool and the services they offer. I gave it a go and I was amused. I got my first assignment done in record time. The tutors I have since worked with have delivered top notch work. Support is available especially to help you sort out disagreements that may arise. The culture is warm and diverse.

Loving the new bookguides, and I can't believe they are free! Pretty much every favorite author is on here and so much more organized as guides SHOULD be. It would be great if we can download some of these guides since I'm on mobile most of the time during class. I can't believe other websites actually charge for this and it's totally free to SP, great find for me and wanted to share the love.

English tutors are amazing, I think they are from UK because of writing skills very very great! I hope I get to meet them personally or travel to UK. My favorite English tutors are here on Studypool but also Chegg because of different nationalities which helps learn from different accents. Studypool although is much cheaper and same quality tutors. I don't really dislike anything besides no video but I see others have posted same thing, I feel like there is so much more to discover on website tools.

The tech team does a great job or communicating. So I recently had a small issue with my account balance which was really random, but serious to me because I can use my student balance for purchases - before I reported I actually had a notification in my email letting me know the issue was being resolved. Very proactive and hoping most companies were like this. I do enjoy the tutoring services as well.

I heard that one of my classmates was working with a tutor from studypool but I thought the site only works on a regular schedule (like from 8 to 5pm). I usually do my homework at night, so I never wanted to use it, until the day that I had just a couple of days to make a SWOT Analysis for my marketing class it was 10 pm. I check if the service was available and surprisingly it was, I found out it works 24 hours. I had to pay more than I expected but it was worth it and I found a tutor who guided me with a couple of things I wasn’t sure about the project. He knew about the topic so I felt confident. It was a good experience to be the first time I used it.

I believe there has to be some balance as tutor when working with each student. I don't think winning a tutoring session isn't the challenge and instead it's the work distribution. I have worked with over 50+ students already have been issued multiple sanctions because of policies breach but it's EXTREMELY challeneging handling this many students. I would like to see an effort be put towards allowing us tutors to extend deadlines without all these permissions needed. Thanks you for listening.

I signed up today to see what’s the deal. I was kinda lost at first but the guys over at Customer Support were kind enough to send me some info and instructions on how to post help for questions- it's super easy to be honest and they reply to me pretty quickly. I didn’t find their mini help center at first, but it’s pretty neat glad I found it as they have lots of subjects to work with and lots of policies to get familiarized with. I’m currently waiting for a few tutors so hoping to work with them soon.

Studypool book guides have actually been really helpful with a few projects I've worked with recently. It's hard to find the complete information elsewhere, which usually, very few websites include the full motifs, and symbols of the books and the info is pretty messy. These guides have some neat infographics too for each guide (which I've used in my projects). I'd say Cliffnotes and Studypool are some of my fav right now for literary guides.

They should add video, instead of just tutoring sessions. How much more of a convenience would it be to actually talk to the tutor you're working with? I think I would actually use the site more if that was an actual feature. Time zones is always an issue for me, so I would just like to knock off the session with a call instead of back and forth.

Many students like me who work and go to school, benefit a lot from platforms like Studypool and use the site quite frequently because the tutors are good. The only suggestion I'd like to make is to offer more discounts or help out with costs for returning students like me, and who are active quite a bit (like some sort of VIP list of student with exclusive discounts). I've already worked with more than 8 tutors since the school year started.

They should make it available for Android users, I see Studypool is available in iTunes so hopefully that is on their agenda. Most of the time when I do need help I'm on my phone andanwhen it's when I receive my assignments so it'll be great if the app can be used for Android so I can proactively post what I need help with and basically have everything ready when I hit my laptop.

The best thing about the site is the pricing because someone can work with whatever budget they have . the disadvantage with this though is that the higher the price the more likely to find quality help and vise-vasa. Secondly, there is time flexibility, one can allocate any amount of time they have and they will get answers. Finally, one is given an option to choose from a wide variety of tutors.
