About HelpNow

HelpNow is an online learning suite that offers tutoring, collaboration, and study tools for students of diverse needs and backgrounds. It provides live homework help for grades K-12 from 2pm-11pm daily with professional tutors, allowing students to communicate with tutors using an interactive, virtual whiteboard to chat, write, draw, copy/paste text or images and graph homework problems.

HelpNow also offers skills building and test preparation where users can connect directly to a live tutor to review the topics and questions covered in the quiz. Additionally, the Writing Lab and Send Question Center options allow users to receive assistance without connecting with a live tutor, and collaborative tools such as Meet and Brainwave are available for those who prefer to work independently or in a group setting.

All live tutoring sessions are saved and can be replayed or shared with friends and teachers.
