Opinion: Upper Campus should have Paper too

Paper has helped freshmen get help and feedback after school hours. So why don’t all upperclassmen have access?

Freshmen can submit their writing assignments to Paper or get feedback from a trained tutor in any of their core classes. So why don’t all upperclassmen get this oportunity as well?

A junior student struggles on a math assignment. His freshman sister has access to the Paper tutoring app, so she says, “Hey, just use Paper.” The Upper Campus student says, “What’s Paper?” so the freshman sister shows him. Upper Campus should be able to access Paper just like a freshman can.

Paper is an online tutoring app for kids that are struggling on an assignment or just have questions all together. Paper also offers an essay review where college students will grade student essays and give them feedback in less than 24 hours so they can get a better grade on your assignment. This website is offered to freshmen and special education students and multilingual kids at Upper Campus too.

Upper Campus should have Paper because it is a 24/7 program where students can get help at any time any place when their teachers can’t help them late at night. This is helpful because if it’s like 10 p.m and a student needs help on the assignment and their teachers are asleep and they need help they can get the help they need.

Another reason Upper Campus should have Paper is that they can submit essays or assignments to be graded before they turn it in and get feedback in less than 24 hours. This is helpful because if they want to make sure they did a good job on an assignment, students can fix it up and get a better grade than they would have gotten.

The Upper Campus student uses the freshman sister’s computer. He asks questions to a math tutor,  draws out equations using the drawing feature, and he tells the tutor where he is struggling. In return, the tutor walks the Upper Campus student through the math problem, which shows why Paper would be as useful to Upper Campus students as freshmen, if only they had the option.
