Since 1996, BJ Pinchbeck’s Homework Helper has been the curator of the best free education and homework resources for students, teachers and parents. My dad and I created a homework resource site that was visited by more than 10,000 students, parents and teachers every day.

Although this site was designed for all elementary, middle and high school students, many college students have used this site to help them with their studies. In addition, many links added to the site are intended to help parents and teachers. When adding links to the site, I must consider students, parents and teachers since all are closely involved with the educational process of students.

I post educational sites that I believe are the best of the best. I avoid sites with excessive advertising, and poor or questionable content. Also, I typically avoid sites that are not free to students.

Have fun looking at the resources on my site and please be sure to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions.
