Homework Help Websites

How about some foreign language assistance? Here are some surefire online guides that hunt down the answers parents and kids need when assignments get tough.

Your child asks you for help on question No. 5. You stroll to the kitchen table, confident that you can answer the riddling problem in no time – only to quickly realize you’re no closer to unraveling it than your kid.

Stumped? Not if you know where to surf! The web offers a marvelous array of creditable homework help websites.

Most sites are actually portals or hubs that direct students and parents to specific learning tools and other useful sites.

Listed below are some free sites that can help answer even the most puzzling question in any subject.

BJ Pinchbeck’s Homework Helper

Its homepage declares, “If you can’t find it here, you just can’t find it.” And we believe it!

Created by a college student, this portal provides links to sites that tackle any subject, including science, math, foreign language, social studies, English and even computer science.

And each subject has subtopics. For example, in science, more-specific sections include general science, biology, chemistry and so on. The site covers help for all ages.

Homework Center

A section called “Tools for School” provides links for virtually every subject.

In math, find a link for flash cards; in geography, calculate distances in the U.S. and find latitude and longitude. And in science, use the handy conversion calculator to figure out length, area, mass, volume, and even cooking measurements.

The site aims to let kids learn the answer, instead of just finding it.

Kid Info

With a simple, kid-friendly design, this portal offers age-tailored links, including a “Students” tab for homework help.

Here, children can easily navigate and find information about any subject that’s dogging them, from American history and art to music and math.

There are roundups of reference resources and search engines, too, plus a spot just for younger kids. The site caters to grades K-12.

Ask Dr. Math

Arithmetic is a troubling subject for many kids – and often, parents have forgotten what they learned in school. Here, the problem is solved: Just conveniently submit your question to “Dr. Math” – a group of college math students – and wait for the response.

They’ll explain the answer so kids can learn how to solve the problem. Browse the archive section for previously answered head-scratchers, for elementary students all the way up to through college level.

There’s also a link that explains math formulas.

Discovery Education Classroom Resources

Why simply “read” your help? Kids are more visually wired than ever – and this site offers a trove of digital videos that take advantage of how many of them learn best.

Click on the “Home Resources” tab at the top of the homepage, and you’re whisked to a well-organized, easy-to-browse collection of educational clips on math, science, English, social studies, world languages and more. It’s a destination covering K-12.


Need a math helper? This free-to-use website allows students in middle and high school, along with college, to use videos, animations and simulations to assist in learning.

Individual homework help is not included, but materials are provided to help students with math assignments.

Fact Monster Homework Center

This website includes an encyclopedia, dictionary, thesaurus and atlas for students to utilize.

Plus, they can play educational games and go to the homework section of the site of help in geography, math, social studies and more.


Kids can browse links from hundreds of U.S. government-run websites. Topics include art and music, government, history, reading, writing and more. Things are broken up by grades, as well.
