Unlimited learning and wellbeing support when you need it most, on your terms

How does it work?

It couldn’t be easier.  Log in and select the subject you’d like help with. You’ll be allocated a subject expert (an Online Learning Assistant known as an OLA), who will talk you through your problem via the live chat.

You can upload a picture or type your question in the chat box and your OLA work with you to find the answer and provide help until you understand and are happy.

“I really enjoy using askOLA as it makes me feel like I’m not alone with my homework or my worries.

Noah Fitzpatrick, 13 

Who will I be chatting to?

Our OLA community is made up of real people.  You won’t be talking to automated bots, instead you are chatting with fully qualified and carefully vetted humans who are happy to support you, 7 days a week!

What can I get help with?

Ask our OLAs anything about English, maths, science and even get support with essay writing. Your OLA will work with you until you understand and, most importantly, until your mind is at ease! 

If you’re feeling stressed about your work, or anything else, mention it to your OLA. We’re here to help.
