By Navya M on June 23, 2022

Live help has been a phenomenal success for For those of you who don't know what live help is, it is a new SHW feature that allows users to get free 1:1 help with math questions for homework help or exam practice. Until recently, the timings for live help were 5-7 pm PST, but now, on popular demand, we proudly introduce Live Help India, often called Doubt Clearing during a more suitable time. Live Help India is available on weekdays from 6-8 pm IST. Click on the link here 
to get started!

So, why should you join live help India?

Get help with India-specific topics, in India-specific times!

The structure of the Indian curriculum is vastly different from the US-based Khan Academy curriculum, but don't worry, we've got you covered! In addition, to help in topics ranging from Pre-algebra to Calculus, our tutors can also help you with concepts from the Indian curriculum such as CBSE Grade 9 to 12, the olympiad, and competitive math. You can get help with either homework or examination practice.

Get 1:1 Attention:

In online classes or for that matter even offline classes, it is often difficult to get help 1:1 from teachers and this often leads to learning gaps and a lack of understanding. At, our volunteer tutors will give you dedicated attention and will help you learn, understand and assimilate knowledge. In some parts of India, schools have not reverted to offline classes. Consequently, students can complement their online learning with free doubt clearing at Simply join the zoom meeting with your questions ready, and experience the magic of live doubt clearing unfold.

Certified Tutors who Understand the Nuances of the Indian Curriculum:

To become a tutor on, applicants must undergo a certification process to display mastery in a particular subject followed by a training period in which they are taught effective tutoring methods. Many of our Doubt Clearing IST tutors have taken Indian examinations and mastered the Indian curriculum. This helps them solve questions, give tips, and tricks, and share study skills.

It's free!

The best part is that it is absolutely free! At, our mission is to connect the world through learning. By utilising the power of volunteering, we bring to you quality tutoring for free!
Now that we have your interest, let's move on to how you can join a Doubt Clearing Session:
  1. Sign up for a account.
  2. Navigate to the live Doubt Clearing Link.
  3. Click on the 'Match With a Tutor' button. Follow the steps to add a course and description for your question.
  4. In 5-10 mins, you will be matched with an available certified tutor who will invite you to their Zoom room.
  5. Your tutor will assist you with your query. It's as simple as that!

Becoming a Doubt Clearing Tutor:

By displaying mastery in one or more math topics through our certification system, you can also become a tutor on Schoolhouse and host doubt clearing sessions (in addition to a plethora of other types of sessions). By becoming a tutor on Schoolhouse, you gain real-world experience in tutoring, feel the satisfaction of volunteering and reinforce your own learning. For tutoring, there is no time commitment either so you can volunteer as per your own schedule.

Whether you're a school teacher or a high school student, you can become a tutor! In fact, many of the tutors on Schoolhouse are high school students, who can empathise with learners, and guide them through a peer's perspective on a math problem. Before I conclude, I would like to give a big shoutout to all the tutors who have been regularly hosting live help sessions!
