Online marketplace for students to connect with tutors


HelpHub is a browser-based application that connects individual tutors with high school and higher education students through instant messaging, video and phone conferencing, and file sharing online, 24/7. Students can search by subject, and HelpHub automatically sorts through its database and find the most relevant tutors for the student. HelpHub is free to use.


Tutors can sign up on HelpHub’s website. After creating an account and verifying their contact information, tutors are required to complete their profile and submit electronic credentials and documents which are reviewed by HelpHub. If a tutor is verified, his or her profile will include a verification badge. HelpHub offers Tutor Karma Points, which measures the responsiveness and activity level of the tutor. Tutor Karma Points also are used to rank tutors in search results and determine the number of weekly students matched with your subject and profile. Chats and video calls include a whiteboard for the tutor to write or draw on and a file sharing tool. In addition, tutors can be paid for their service and choose an hourly rate between $10 and $260.

Students also must sign up on HelpHub’s website. After creating a profile and verifying their phone number, students can begin searching and contacting tutors. Students can either use a broad search with keywords or specific searches with class names, location, or school name. As of October 22nd, 2015, HelpHub has tutors from over 50 schools worldwide. HelpHub will provide tutors relating to the students’ searches and rank them based on their Tutor Karma Points. Students can then begin messaging tutors and setting up tutoring sessions. If the tutor has a required hourly fee, students can also add their credit card information and pay tutors during a tutoring session.


HelpHub is a browser-based service that requires a constant internet connection to use. HelpHub is also available for iOS devices.


HelpHub is free to use, but may require student payments depending on whether the tutor has an hourly fee. HelpHub also offers in-app consumables.
