Homework help: finding a tutor online that can help you for free

If you are looking for a tutor, then you have come to right place. While you will not walk away with an actual tutor, you will receive some information to help you find a tutor who can help you online. Not only will the tutor be able to help you while you are online, but the tutor you find will be absolutely free. Here are some tips to help you find the perfect online tutor who does not charge a fee:

Use a university website: If you are a college student, you should be able to find an online tutor through your school. Many colleges have writing labs and those are usually staffed by graduate students who are earning a degree in writing. Those writing labs are gaining online capabilities and this means they are staff with tutors who will work for free. They make their money through the university so you do not need to personally pay them. If you are already paying tuition for the services provided through your college, then you should invest your time in using the online tutoring programs.

Conduct an Internet search: The Internet is full of countless numbers of websites. One of the latest trends in website creation is the tutoring site. There are many sites that charge fees for help, but you should be able to find sites that do not charge anything at all. These sites make money in other ways, generally through advertising or another type of service. If you search for free tutoring, you should get an immense amount of hits. You simply need to start looking through the list and make a decision.

Talk to friends: You never know what your friends are doing online until you ask them. You might have friends who are already accessing help through online services. They might have the perfect solution to your problem - a high quality tutoring site that does not charge a fee. If your friends do not use online tutoring sites, they might know someone who does. Word-of-mouth referrals usually end up with positive results and you might find the perfect tutor online that you would not have found with a basic Internet search.

When you are searching, be sure to check references and privacy issues. You do not want the whole world to know you are using a tutoring site.
