Andrea Paulk

Ecology Student

I had a question about a lab assignment, so I searched online for help, but couldn’t find anything. I decided to use the Q&A platform on Course Hero, and it took the tutor a few hours to help me with my question, which was amazing. I didn’t expect the turnaround to be so quick. On top of that, multiple tutors offered to help, which was great to know I had options to chose from. It exceeded my expectations!

Tarun Nagarajan

Bioengineering Student

I was struggling to understand CHEM 102 concepts and I felt that Course Hero would be a good resource for me to ask my questions. Course Hero has a very simple online tutoring interface and I was excited about how quickly I received a response. Course Hero is a great resource for any student who wants quick explanations for their homework questions!

Pranay Kejriwal

Philosophy Student

What really stands out to me with the Q&A feature is the quick response time. I was working on a problem set for a philosophy class, and there were two particular problems that I was having difficulty with. I decided to ask for tutoring help, and got a response within an hour, which really stood out to me. The promptness of the responses really makes Course Hero stand out!
