This article looks at the benefits and demerits of hiring tutors to complete assignments for a student . Since it is controversial topic, listing the arguments on both sides is done conclusively

Should you use websites that answer math problems

I work with an educational organization that tries to enhance education for college students in about 3 countries. We recently had a heated argument with my colleagues on whether it is a good idea using websites such as HomeworkDoer to get help for math or other related subjects. Though we could not agree on a final stand point, here are some of the arguments raised for and against academic writing help.
Demerits of hiring tutors
From the argument, the demerits of using such a service carried more weight that the merits. There are several reasons why using such a service could be detrimental for a student. These include:
No learning is achieved
When you hire a tutor, who does your assignment for you, you are missing out on the relevant skill taught by handling the assignment. For instance, if you hire someone to solve your quadratic equation, you will most likely never learn how to solve it yourself.
It is unfair to honest individuals
Every individual goes through a learning institution before starting any career. If someone cheated his/her way through, it would unfair to those who scored average grades through their individual efforts.
Can be expensive
Have you checked how much essay mills charge for a single page? You will be amazed by the kind of insane profits that these startups rake in. Using these services can be extremely expensive
Not very ethical
Any ethical business gives you the assurance that you are impacting the world in one way or another. I don’t think homework sites have the same feeling

Advantages of hiring tutors

There are a few good things about enlisting such services. Her are just a few of them.
Save time
Solving math problems takes a lot of time. Hiring someone to do that for you will save a few hours or so.
Can result in good grades
There are online tutors that deliver as promised. That means if you wanted an A, you can score that grade without breaking a sweat.
Creates time for other tasks
If you are held down by various responsibilities and you must do your homework, then an essay mill could be a good idea. For instance, people who work part time can be able to achieve more with this.
Education mismatch
Some scholars argue that there is a great drift between what one studies in school and their future careers. This implies what your score in class is not that essential. This in turn justifies buying a paper from an essay mill.

Looking at the disadvantages and advantages raised above, whether to use a website to answer your math problems or not can be a difficult choice. However, how ethical the process is should probably the deciding shot. In this case, for me as an educator, it is a no-go zone. What do you think?
