General Homework Help from BJ Pinchbeck

BJ Pinchbeck, a 24-year-old Drexel University graduate, has a website offering a list of free homework help resources for many grade levels. There are links for help with math, English/language arts, science, social studies, various foreign languages, music, art, computer science and health. Each section is divided into more specific subsections to refine your child's searches. Keep in mind that each link will redirect you to the hosting site.

What makes this site stand out from the rest is how thoroughly researched and double-checked it is. Although there are other similar sites, few are as detailed, comprehensive and easy to use. You or your child can also e-mail BJ Pinchbeck directly if you have any questions or concerns.

Assistance from Math Nerds

At, your child can get questions about math homework answered for free. Since the volunteer tutors on this site take about 24 hours to respond, have your child do his or her math homework a bit early if you know help will be required. Alternatively, you can browse through the archives of previously answered questions. Although you must register to have access to the archive, registration is completely free of charge.

When your child e-mails Math Nerds, he or she will receive actual help and guidance - your child will not simply get answers. Their mission is not to do your child's math homework, but to provide real learning assistance and lessons at no charge.

English/Language Arts Help from ReadWriteThink

If your child needs help with English/language arts, you can find free resources from ReadWriteThink. Look no further for help with writing fiction and nonfiction, organizing and summarizing, analyzing texts and general grammatical rules. The tools available from ReadWriteThink are referred to as 'student interactives'. Many student interactives are Adobe Flash-based, so make sure Flash is installed on your computer.

An example of a typical student interactive is one deigned to help with K-5 poetry writing. It's a lesson on shape poems, or poems that are in the shape of the objects they describe. It provides an example of a shape poem and then ideas to inspire your child to create his or her own shape poem. When your child has poetry-related homework, a simple, clear interactive lesson like this can be very helpful.
