directly in Pundits live sessions and ask them to explain specific topics.

Don’t worry! Pundits sessions are recorded and saved in your personal feed. For every question
you ask, you are able to review the video of the answer at any time, as many times as you want,
at no extra charge. You can even share sessions with friends!

How much does Pundits cost?
The first 10 minutes are free! After that, it’s a dollar a minute. Our sessions are designed to
be super efficient, so most questions average just 6-8 tokens, or $6-8. Harder problems, or
multi-question problems take a little longer.
How is this cheaper than my regular tutor?
We created Pundits so you can save money on tutoring! Instead of spending $60-100/ week on
tutors, you can spend $20 or $30, get your questions answered and rewatch the sessions anytime
you need a refresher.
Why do you charge for tutoring? Other apps are free.
A lot of cheaper or free apps use search engines like Google to answer your questions, meaning,
the answer may not be very helpful, clear or accurate. We pay real live humans to answer your
questions and make sure that they are experts in what they’re teaching.
Will Pundits help me do better in school?
Sometimes your teacher is really confusing. Other times, even though you understood the problem
in class but can’t seem to remember how to do it on your own. Pundits lets you ask a specific
question that you’re stuck on and we give you a step by step lesson on how to solve it so that
you can do similar problems on your own. Our tutors don’t just tell you the answer, and you can
rely on them, no matter how few or many questions you have.
What are pre-recorded videos?
Free videos you can watch at anytime that are in the main Pundits feed! Browse other students’
sessions and you just might find the answer you need without ever spending a dollar! We also
have free videos on different topics like finding the area of a triangle or rationalizing
fractions available on your school feed through Pundits Academy.
Is my payment information secure?

and most updated security measures. For more information on their security practices, please
I already have a tutor, why should I use Pundits?
Awesome that you already have a tutor. But we know sometimes you need help when they aren’t
available, or when you only need five or ten minutes of their time. Instead of dealing with the
hassle of scheduling, or having to wait a couple days to talk to them, you can ping our tutors
and get help right away. Pundits helps you with questions anytime, anywhere. Pundits is a more
affordable, more convenient and more customized tool for getting homework help and preparing for
tests. Traditional tutoring requires a minimum of an hour-long session, which can cost upwards
of $60/hr. It also requires transportation and scheduling, which proves cumbersome with busy
parent and student schedules. With Pundits, you pay for help only with the questions you are
stuck on or don’t understand. You don’t lose time traveling to meet with a tutor and can get
help even while away from home. You can ask questions from airports, cafes, trains--wherever you
Can Pundits help with off-hours questions?
Yes! Our tutors are notified via text and on their iPads via push notifications whenever new
questions are asked. We keep a large pool of qualified tutors to ensure that you get a timely
answer to your question no matter what time you ask it.
I need more tokens. What do I do?
Go to the “get tokens” link in the app. You can purchase packages directly, or send your parents
a text to reload them for you! Super easy!
