Is studying with strangers really worth my time?

It has been shown through various studies and research that many people achieve higher grades, and study more effectively, with the help of others. Your study partner is only a stranger until you begin speaking with them, and work together towards a common goal you both share. Think of our website in the same light as you would a dating service.
