"During the pandemic, my workload for school increased a lot. At first, it was doable, but more stressful homework was given by our school, which was hard to deal with. Smartly has been a huge help because I can study my subjects, complete my assignments, and get higher grades while better understanding all the material."

"Finding homework help is not always easy, especially as a low-income student. Most homework assistance sites are either paid for or are really low-quality. Smartly has enabled me to get help in a way I never thought was possible before. Thank you, Smartly."

Is Smartly a free service?
Yes! Smartly is 100% free and will always be free!
How often can I ask for help?
You can ask for help anytime, anywhere! However, please don't flood our forms with an excessive amount of questions since it can be flagged as spam; use your own judgement and use it judiciously.
Can I upload images of my homework?
Sort of. We are working on implementing a file-upload option soon. For the time-being, please upload your images to imgur.com and insert the link in the form.
So, will you just do all my homework?
No. Smartly is not designed to do your homework for you. Our helpers will offer guidance and pointers to help you best. We want you to learn from us!
Who are the helpers?
All helpers have applied for the position in our "Become a Helper" section of the site. Helpers can be any age and from any country, but they are all reviewed to make sure they are qualified to help you in the subjects that they are proficient in only.
How do I communicate with helpers?
After you submit your homework request form, you will get an email from one of our helpers in the email that you provided. We are diligently working on creating a live-chat feature, which will pair helpers and students one-on-one in a whiteboard setting. However, this will take time to develop and implement.
Can I donate?
We have met above and beyond our donation goal. For sponsorship information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org!
