Thank you Yup for sponsoring this post. Provide your child with instant homework help, 24/7 and get homework done!
With our oldest entering high school this year I feel like we have entered into a whole new world full of college requirements, after-school sports, and lots of late nights spent on homework. My son has always been a good student but math is a subject he struggles with and I was nervous about his advanced placement as a freshman in geometry. Turns out I was right to be nervous because just a few weeks in and he was already struggling with test scores which kicked in his anxiety making things even worse. Thankfully, I came across Yup a math tutor app (it also helps with physics & chemistry). Check out how this math tutor app helped my son get back on track and reduce his anxiety.
The Math Tutor App that Saved My High School Son’s Grades
Trying to keep up with high school math while playing chauffeur to 5 kids who are active in after-school sports and activities is a challenge. To be honest, math wasn’t really my strong point in high school or college anyways. So, when my oldest started the year off struggling I felt pretty helpless and I knew we needed to get help. With his demanding schedule, we found it near impossible to schedule a weekly tutor and even when we did it was a waste of money on the week’s he didn’t need it. Which is why we were so excited to find Yup.
What is Yup?
The Yup Tutoring App is an on-demand tutoring app that allows students to message with expert math, physics, and chemistry tutors through their iOS or Android phone. Tutors help students solve their homework problems and gain a greater understanding of the lessons and they have tutors available 24/7. Without needing to schedule a tutor beforehand students are able to get help exactly when they need it. This feature helped reduce my son’s stress & anxiety as well. He knows that when he needs help with a problem he has a tutor right at his fingertips ready to help him work through it.
How does this Science & Math Tutor App Work?
You simply download the Yup app to your iOS or Android device. Start your free trial or get started with a paid subscription (starting at just $15 per hour). Once you are all logged in your student simply snaps a photo of their homework and circles the problem they need help with. Then they click the submit button to instantly connect with the first available tutor.
We never waited more than a few minutes to be connected to an online tutor and there are wait time indicators that let you know how long the wait will be. You can also activate your push notifications so that you can receive a message when a tutor is found.
What I loved about Yup is the tutors really help the students work through the problem (they call this collaborative learning) even testing their skill after they get the right answer making sure they learned and will retain the lesson. Check out this YouTube video to take a look at a session in action.
Who are the Tutors?
Yup tutors are real people, many of whom are graduates from top universities, teachers, professors, or students from elite colleges. Yup only hires the best, in fact, each and every tutor is put through a rigorous application process and less than 2% of applicants are accepted. Once accepted Yup tutors are trained and tracked receiving weekly feedback so they can continue to improve their skills.
Which subjects does Yup offer tutoring for?
The Yup science & math tutor app covers all common core math standards, chemistry, and physics plus AP Calculus AB, AP Chemistry, and AP Physics 1 & 2.
