Hi, I am new to Jiskha. May one of the tutors tell me what Jiskha is for? My daughter uses Jiskha, but I'm not sure if this is a safe site. Is Jiskha for kids cheeting? If so, I'll immediately tell my daughter to log off. Also is Ms. Sue a tutor? I'm wondering because she has an icon next to her name. Sorry for all the questions, but is there a way on this site to see the tutors in person or live? Thank you, Abigail Cheriman

  1. First of all, I've been a Jiskha tutor for over 10 years. I retired from classroom teaching over 20 years agol

    Jiskha was started many years ago for students to help other students with their homework. But now, although anyone can post here, most tutors are retired teachers and other professionals. Real and electronic monitors keep unsuitable posts off the board. Yes, Jiskha is safe.

  4. Hi, welcome. Im a student. Yes, Me. Sue is a tutor. This site is not cheating. It helps sutdents and parents to boost their knowledge. I don't know if you can meet them in person. I'm also new. This is why Jiskha was created, to ask questions. Don't worry. Have a great day!

  5. I think this site is pretty 50 50. The tutors help people learn but not cheat whereas some of the students give out all the test answers. Obviously, when the answers are handed right to us we take them so I recommend watching your daughter on this site because she could be cheating (just like literally everyone on here :)) )

  6. Hi. We welcome questions. I am a retired college prof. I've been helping on Jiskha since 2005. We don't condone cheating and we don't help cheaters. As Ms. Sue notes we remove answers that are posted to aid in cheating. All tutors on Jiskha are volunteers. We are anonymous just as the students are anonymous. We love to help and we like what we are doing.

  14. As a new tutor, this is definitely a safe site to get help on problems. We like kids who come to us to provide us with their answers so we can check them and give explanations. Sometimes answers are posted for kids to cheat, but they are usually removed instantly if seen. As always, ask us any questions if you have any.

  18. A couple of things to know about Jiskha:
    Mrs. Sue sadly passed in November, 2019
    Anyone with the person icon before their name is a tutor
    If somebody is cheating, like requesting all of the answers or guilt-tripping people into giving them answers, the person will be banned from Jiskha.

    Hope this helps!

  19. It's somewhat of a safe site. People go here to check their homework but some people paste the answers

  20. @Dave, if she passed then she’s dead.,,,

    And to the person who asked this, I’d just watch her while she does her tests and homework, and then use this site to check her answers. I’d suggest using ones that have a lot of upvotes and positive comments, I’m a student who uses this site to check my answers with my mom looking at them while I do so.
