5 Websites Where Kids Get Free Homework Help

Homework kidFor many kids, doing homework becomes a nightmare scenario where they get stuck on a problem while the homework is due the next day. Their parents may not have the knowledge or experience to understand the problem, and the child doesn't have immediate access to their teacher.

When this happens, panic sets in. Usually both parent and child can get frustrated. The child because they feel helpless and without any options to get a good grade, and parents because they feel as though they are inadequate for not having the ability to help.

Thankfully, there are organizations out there that view it as a public service to offer kids homework help for free. Usually they don't offer the service for completely free - it's either offered with advertising or by offering premium, paid homework help services. However, the free services that are available could be all the child needs to get through that especially difficult homework problem.

Student Questions

It's very difficult for students that search for free homework help online. Most of the services that are touted as free are actually not free at all, but instead require expensive monthly membership. Luckily, there are a number of paid services that offer a certain level of legitimately free service. Student Questions is one of those sites.

Student Questions


The system at Student Questions is innovative because it relies on a rating system in order to qualify certain tutors as highly rated. Students must pay for answers from those highly rated tutors. However, at this website students could opt to receive answers from other high school or college students for absolutely free.

While the answers may not be perfect, they could offer enough useful homework help to get the student through the problem they're having such difficulty with. Sometimes, if the problem is especially difficult or the grade is very important, it might actually be worthwhile for students to purchase a higher-level answer.

DLTK Kids

PATH is a wonderful public service with the tagline, "Guiding students along the PATH to Knowledge." The main page describes the website as 100% free, and there are several buttons students can use to get help.

These include great message boards where lots of other students and teachers can offer assistance, the student may opt to email one of the volunteer teachers or use the Live Help system.

100% Free Live Homework Help


PATH is owned and operated by a career police officer and seeks to maintain a safe and free homework environment for kids. According to the owner (User "Vortex" in the chat system), after the loss of AOL sponsorship in 2006, the service has declined to only 20 teacher volunteers who continue to valiantly hold up the light of public service for children's education.

PATH remains one of the only services reviewed that is truly completely, 100% free for all students and supported only by the goodwill of teachers. The service could use the financial support of any organization that believes in free homework help for all children across the world.

Brightstorm

Beyond tutoring by chatroom, another valuable form of homework help comes from free instructional videos. Brightstorm offers an impressive free service where students can watch homework help videos for the most common, difficult subjects such as Algebra, Geometry, Biology and even Physics.

Browse through thousands of topic areas within every subject, and choose the homework help video that applies to the topic you're currently studying.

All videos here are high-quality and well made. It's like having a personal instructor right in your home. For Math and Science, this is an important resource that should be on every student's bookmark list.

At Home Tuition

Another quality homework help website is At Home Tuition. However, like most sites that offer tutoring services, it isn't completely free. The service offers full curriculum training, including an assessment, lessons and private tutoring via the Internet.

The services at this website are plentiful. If you can afford to purchase the service for your child, it would be well worth the investment. However, for families that can't afford the service, there is a free, limited online tutoring service for students.

Algebra.com

Algebra is always one of the hardest subjects for junior-high and high school students when they first encounter it. This is why it's also the subject where so many students seek out tutors for help. Algebra.com may not appear very impressive when you first arrive at the site (the design leaves a little to be desired), but the service it offers is impressive.

The service draws in volunteer tutors with the promise of free promotion for their own private tutoring service. Of course, it draws in students with the promise of 100% free tutoring. By bringing the two together, students can post their homework problems, and tutors have the opportunity to provide an answer. Students then rate the answers. Everyone wins - kids receive homework help, and tutors gain the credibility they need to promote their tutoring service.

Getting quality help with homework problems isn't alway easy. For many families, doing homework may turn into a stressful, aggravating experience every evening. Services that offer free online homework help may be all you need to transform that experience into one that is valuable and useful for your child.
