We employ award winning authors, college professors and business professionals who have graduated from some of the top academic institutions in the world such as Harvard, Stanford, Yale, and University of Pennsylvania.
How does the process work?
You chose the subject areas you are comfortable explaining. When we receive a help request in that subject area, we review it for completeness and then pass it on to all the Nerds that we have interviewed and approved.
Are there any costs or membership fees associated with being a Nerd?
None, it is free to be a Nerd. Ask A Nerd® charges a service fee of the bid amount you collect from the student.
How much, how often and exactly how will I get paid?
Each help request is priced on a case by case basis by you. Once you accept and complete a help request and it is reviewed by the student (4 day period) we will issue you a payment. The method by which you get paid varies based on your needs. For example, we can issue you a check, credit your PayPal account or even send money directly to your bank account.
How much of the bid amount will I be paid out?
Ask A Nerd® charges a 28% service fee from the transaction. If you place for example $100 and you win, you will be paid out $72.
