Course Hero Reviews
About Course Hero
Students are often reluctant to ask their teacher for clarification of class material. There are some teachers who don’t make themselves available for help outside of the classroom. Course Hero is a website that offers help to students spanning over an array of subjects, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
On Course Hero there is an array of information to search through. There is general information on hundreds of school subjects as well as a collection of college course documents. This collection of documents includes class notes, syllabi, study guides, practice quizzes, flashcards and much more. It is even possible that you will be able to locate materials from the course at the school you are attending.
CourseHero.com also offers full course lessons in a variety of subjects. While some of these courses have been developed by its members, there are others which have been submitted by college professors.
There are two memberships for Course Hero. The first option is a free membership which is limited to the flashcards and the tutor help desk. However, payment is required when using the tutor help desk. Students determine the price they are willing to pay for an answer to a question. As soon as the question is replied to, the payment transaction is completed.
The premier paid membership gives members full access to all of the platforms on the site including flashcards, documents, and are even granted $100.00 of credits for the tutor help desk. Each submitted question or reply back to a tutor will deduct $5.00 in credits. The cost for one year of the premier membership is $95.40. They also offer a three month package for $59.85 or a one month subscription for $39.95.
Since so many students are tight on cash, Course Hero created an exchange program; they will give you a month of their premier membership in exchange for documents. After uploading 40 course documents, all of which have to be approved by their team, you will be awarded with one free month of complete access to the site.
Professors who discovered their course materials could be accessed through CourseHero were very upset. Besides the fact that they hadn’t approved it, they felt that they were being exploited because the company was making money off of the materials they created and the time it took to do so.
These professors also believe that the site was taking away from the overall learning process. Not only were their students not learning the material but they were also being deprived of the intrinsic rewards that accompany a successful learning experience.
Students who used the tutor help desk were disappointed with the tutors’ lack of effort and ability to provide them with a response in a timely manner. Not only did the tutors barely meet the deadline, but they also did not provide valid answers. Some of them even responded with a question instead of an answer.
Overall, online reviews displayed negative feedback on the services provided by Course Hero. If you are paying for an education it is probably best just to do the work yourself or join a study group.

I have to say that the material on the site is not great material. I followed the information on the site to use for my classes and got terrible grades for using it. The students are posting fake information and by the time you realize it its too late!I ended up going to a site for my psychology course which has a doctorate graduate who has the right information. I followed her guide and only paid 99 cent to get the essays a piece. I had to actually google it though to find the essays . For anyone who needs psychology work, go to this site.
https://drjaquettastevens.wordpress.com/ stay away from course hero the prices are outrages for bad homework answers!
They are yet to pay me $500. I strongly recommend if people can join together and complain to the appropriate authority.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS SITE AT ALL COSTS. They will shake you down for money if they have any of your credit card information, and will keep charging to your account long after you have closed it. This situation deserves legal action. These sneaky SOBs have charged 59.99 to my credit card account every 3 months, under my nose, for two years! When I tried to call their customer service line, I tried multiple extensions that would end in them saying something like "ext 002 does not exist" and the line being cut. Basically, it's a bogus phone line to nowhere, where no one answers. Google should not allow their site to come up in searches. These Course Hero people are nothing but hackers and criminals. I had to cut up a credit card because of them. You have been warned.
I was made to work like a dog. When time came to withdraw money, they suspended my account. Never trust this sites.
Honestly speaking, course hero is not a scam as some of you seem to believe. I have worked with the company as a tutor and I think they charge fairly regarding the use of their learning materials. I won't comment much about how they treat students because that part is beyond my knowledge, however as a tutor I believe they pay fair prices. The decision on the amount a student pays solely depends on their agreement with a particular tutor. For instance, if you had a 4 page nursing paper a tutor may request you to pay maybe $80 for the work, another tutor may request more and likewise others may request less. I do not know about the monthly or yearly plan that most of you seem to be complaining about but I will do my research on that and see if the claims are legit or not. Any how hehe if any of you would love to have a private tutor to handle your online classes, assignments, projects, etcetera look no further. Please email me at [email protected] My prices are quite fair compared to the outstanding quality of any of my works. Please don't ask me about my fields because I am good in almost everything, haha, j.k Bye :)
Everyone should stay away from this guile trash. I build my account for a year, and have earned some money (not transfer yet). Then they send me email said that I am violated without warning (actually I am not violated, the material I used I bought for my study) When I asked how I can transfer the money I earned before, they said that they will not give me anything. Especially, they block me to logging my account, but still use my account and my material to make money.
I have been a tutor on this site for two weeks and i had earn slightly over $60 which i was waiting to withdraw after the two week which i don't know why tutors should wait that long since students always pay first to access their services. After i was unable to log in, i checked my email and i was surprised to know that my account is closed without even one warning of violation of their terms. After i conducted my research i found out that they steal from both tutors and students.
This is the message i got after working for them

I worked as tutor with course hero. The company gobble-up my all hardest earned money. They are really a big scammer. Chegg is much better than course hero. Course Hero is a Biggest Scam, Beware of this. they don't pay to their tutors, who works hard for their student to provide value answer. The company sudden block the tutors who works well and answer more with accuracy. How the company CEO is?
