When I was in college it was tough for me to get by in any of my classes on my own, so I often had to get a little extra help. The most effective assistance I received came from professional agencies, but eventually this got to be a little too expensive for me. I was able to find some free help with my homework in geography by using these four strategies:
This first strategy is actually the easiest and so I did this almost immediately. There are a number of people on campus who provide free tutoring services as a way to get credit or meet a requirement in one of their classes. Usually, the tutors are graduate-level students who are more than qualified to provide one with basic consultation on any of a number of topics. I look the specific times and availability for geography tutors and met up at least once per week for the remainder of the quarter.
It had been a while since I organized or was part of a study group. It was back in high school when I needed to prepare for a specific test. But I remembered that I found the whole experience to be really helpful and thought doing the same thing in college would make completing homework much easier. I simply made an announcement in class and very soon found that a handful of students were just as eager to get a regular study group going.
Another strategy that I found really helpful was going to the teacher get assistance during his office hours. Most teachers are required to hold at least a few hours each week. You can make an appointment or often simply drop by. It would help to have specific questions prepared beforehand so that you can save time.
Finally, the last strategy I employed was to get assistance from the online community. There are several specific community chatrooms and discussion forums that focus on academic subjects. Being a part of a large community network really helped me get assistance from a number of different perspectives. As responses to my questions came up, several other members offered up their support of responses which let me know which ones were correct.
