For middle and high school students who need math and science homework assistance or daily SAT/ACT study prep, this app may be the ticket, depending on the tutor. From pre-algebra to trigonometry, chemistry, and more, PhotoStudy - Live Study Help has many options for help. Students clarify up front what kind of help they need: getting started, extra detailed steps, check steps they've already completed, or "I'm completely lost." One concern: PhotoStudy - Live Study Help's paid sessions have time limits of 10 minutes per session. Even though students can purchase another session at the end of that 10 minutes, the already-paid-for minutes that feel like they rapidly decline at the top of the screen during tutoring sessions may add anxiety-provoking time pressure for many students -- and perhaps for some of the tutors, too. If students prepare questions before starting a session and get an efficient -- and friendly -- tutor, this app could be a most welcome help to many students struggling to complete math and science homework. If the tutors a student gets are somewhat slow and not so nice (our experience during this review), the session could add to their frustration.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
