Studiosity offers timely, personal, online feedback for every student.
When a student gets stuck after hours, you can’t always be there to help them with their study question. Studiosity connects them to a real Subject Specialist, in all core subjects, including English, Maths, and Science. The just-in-time help builds their independent thinking, grows confidence, and gets them back on track.
Our Science Specialists cover the full range of K-12 science subjects, including physics, chemistry and biology, from primary through to to Year 12 and foundation/bridging tertiary levels. Our specialist are trained at guiding students through their questions, rather than giving them the answers, and our interactive whiteboard allows the student and specialist to draw diagrams and equations together, while working through the problem.
Students can connect to a Science Specialist for live, one-to-one, personal study help across a range of science subjects. The student shares the question they're struggling with, and in a live, online 'classroom' they can chat back and forth, upload files to discuss with the specialist, and use an interactive whiteboard to draw diagrams, write equations or share examples. To get started, students simply log into their Studiosity account and click 'Ask a question', and we'll connect them - within minutes - to the next available specialist.

The main role of our Subject Specialists is to facilitate learning outcomes through guided questioning, and not to simply provide answers to questions. Our Subject Specialists provide tools, assistance, and support in line with our Academic Integrity Policy. Here are some recent, real examples of questions students have asked our Science Specialists:
Question: "In a food web I am to tell the herbivores, carnivores, decomposers and scavengers. It also says to give info about keystone species - I would also like help with the meaning of keystone species."
Outcome: "[My specialist] is an amazing humorous person and uses her humour to make stuff more interesting and easy to understand. i am very thankful of her helping me. ( She really made me laugh)"
Question: "What’s the difference between an emulsion and a colloid?"
Outcome: "I had no Idea and now I am confident for my upcoming test. thanks so much."
Question: "Iodine-131 has a half life of 8.07 days. If there are initially 4.2mg of I-131, how long will it take before only 1.1mg is left?"
Outcome: "Showing me what to think about rather than just giving the answer was helpful."
