At-Home Online Tutoring with Chegg

School is a topic that moms talk about all the time. Whenever I’m at the gym, at the bus stop, on the pool deck for swim practice, on the baseball field for games or just out and about and see another mom I know, one question that always asked, “How are your kids doing in school?”

It’s a question that every mom has a different answer to, depending upon (of course) as to how their kids are actually doing in school. As kids get older, this question takes on a completely different meaning because parents know that college is soon around the corner. I see this with my 2 (15 year old) nieces. They’re in high school now and it’s time to really start thinking about the future and schoolwork and grades REALLY have an impact at this time in their life.

It’s important to make sure students, especially teens have the resources and help that they need for school work as they get older. I can already see with my son William (who is almost in middle school) that extra help can be such an incredible added benefit. It’s funny, as much as I work as a digital influencer, I’m not proficient in coding at all. William is obsessed with learning everything and anything about coding and he’s been trying to teach himself. Recently I learned about Chegg Tutors for him and it’s been absolutely INCREDIBLE to find this amazing resource for him.

Chegg Tutors is an online service that gives students on-demand access to live, experienced tutors in any subject.

You name it, they have a tutor for it – math, science, programming, business, language and humanities.

What I personally love for all students (and parents!) is the true convenience and ease of Chegg Tutors.

  1. You can work with any tutor on-demand
  2. Available 24/7
  3. Schedule lessons at your convenience
  4. No travelling necessary, no advanced scheduling required

Children – especially nowadays – live busy and filled lives with after-school activities, appointments and after-school jobs. Even my children – in elementary school – have swimming 4 nights a week/baseball 3 nights a week and CCD once a week. Their schedules are pretty busy Monday thru Friday, but school comes first – always. I just know from experience that sometimes it’s difficult to find a tutor who can work with your schedule and make the time to fit in meet-ups and sessions. I think it’s incredible that Chegg offers such an easy way for students to find and get the extra help that they need and desire on their own schedule. Finding the time to fit everything in isn’t always easy, but Chegg understands this and has created a platform that works for everyone. Truly, you can’t put a price on the convenience of Chegg. It’s awesome.

So how does it work for a student? How do you get started?

There are 3 steps. 1) You request help highlighting the subject/topic you’re looking into 2) You get matched with a tutor 3) Get live one-on-one help

It’s that straightforward! The best thing is to really hone in on what you need help with in school. If it’s Algebra, make sure you say exactly what in Algebra is giving you difficulties. The more precise you are, the easier it is to get going.

Like magic, you’re then connected with a tutor in the online lesson space, complete with video chat and a collaborative whiteboard. How amazing is that? Any question you have, they will work through with you. If you’re stuck, they’re patient. If you have more questions, they’re there to answer. Also keep in mind, too that Chegg is perfect for students preparing and getting ready for finals. It’s a wonderful place to help students prep for AP exams, brush up on confusing topics or just get them back on track before the end of the school year. Great way to make sure everyone is set and ready to rock and roll through exam time!

For my William, we needed someone to run through the Spanish alphabet with him. He just started a Beginner’s Spanish class and he’s having trouble making sure he’s pronouncing everything correctly. We put the request out and within an hour, we had 5 tutors lined up to help him out! We went with “Hannah,” who worked with him and easily pronounced everything for him and made sure he understood. It was really great to see how patient she was and really took the time to follow up. I loved how easy the experience was for him! I don’t speak Spanish, so it was incredible to rely on someone and have them come through! Just simple amazing!! All right at home!!

One important thing I’d love to note here, too is that Chegg tutors are either current students or recent graduates of top-tier colleges and universities around the world. You can rest assured that your child is working with someone who has been carefully vetted and selected based on tutoring, teaching and academic experience. As a mom, I love this because it takes the worry out of “who is helping my child?” As I saw online, 98% of lessons on Chegg Tutors have positive reviews.

As you can see, I’m pretty head over heels over Chegg Tutors. I just love this for students and think it’s a game-changer for so many parents out there looking to find the best resources for their children. But don’t just listen to my gush, try it out!

    I have never heard of Chegg Online Tutoring. I have an 11 year old and our current tutor is amazing but she has mentioned retiring so I will go ahead and try this so that I can be prepared in case that happens. I love that the online tutor is interactive!

    This is awesome and I know it will be something I use with 2 of my kids when they get into grade school. I do have a questions, do you know if they work with special needs kids? My son is autistic, has ADHD, and cognitive delay. I would really love to get him some extra tutoring for reading, but not sure this would work for him.

    Online tutoring seems really great because it is so convenient and easy. I love the concept of you not having to travel to different places to find the perfect tutor who can be effective in teaching various subjects. The free trial sounds convincing!

    Oh wow! I’ve never heard of Chegg before, but this service sure sounds like great! I’m always on the hunt for the best tools for my children to learn. You can never have enough resources for them to be on top!

    This is really helpful not only for the kids but also for parents. Because there are times that Math homeworks or other subjects are so difficult even parents can’t answer. I like this tutor service because there are no commitments, you just have to look for a tutor when you need one.

    I try never to judge how my kids are doing in school by grades alone. Those aren’t a real indication of how they are doing over all (at least in my opinion) and I try to weigh the social aspect too. That being said, if grades were a struggle, I would consider something like this for sure.

    This is great! This is why I love technology — it brings a lot of things right into the comfort of our own home 😀 I would have personally loved this when I was young. Guess I’ll have to share it for now with my friends who have kids. it’s very helpful!

    I wonder if they could do chess coaching. We’re in the market for a new coach.

    I am an elementary school teacher and this resource seems incredible! Sometimes students need that extra assistance or to hear a concept taught in a different way. This seems perfect for that! Thanks for sharing!
