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.

Very Pleasantly Surprised

This app is fantastic. First, it alleviates the stress of not being able to help my 16 year-old daughter with her math homework. It is very upsetting to have to tell her "I'm afraid I don't know how to do that. Can you call a friend?" Yup solves that. In chat messages, which include photos of the problems she's working on, the instructor helps her work through the problem. They do it in a manner that helps her learn - they absolutely do NOT give her the answers. Even once she's solved the problem, they will make sure she understands it by asking her to solve a similar problem. If you are considering this app because you want your kids to always have access to math help, it is WELL worth the subscription cost.

Helped our son last 2 years

Our son used the YUP app for Algebra I, Trigonometry, and Algebra II for the last 2 years. Before using YUP he was a achieving B-/C+ for his semester grades. With YUP he was able to achieve B+ marks at semester time. Most importantly he changed his attitude towards dreading math as his hardest subject to feeling confident about tackling more challenging math assignments. YUP tutors don’t provide answers to math questions. Instead, they ask the student how to go about solving each step of a problem so that they understand how they came to their final answer. Recommended!
