Voice of an EA – Pavan Tumula
Q. How were you introduced to Chegg?
I started my journey with Chegg on 12th April 2016 and am currently working on two subjects – Accounting and Finance.
Q. What would you consider to be your achievement in Chegg?
I have solved more than 4,100 questions so far and have maintained an overall CF score of 89%.
Q. Explain your initial experience with the Chegg Q&A Board?
I am a student of CA final. After failing to clear the exam a few times, I was thinking of taking up a job. One day a friend of mine told me about this earning opportunity through Chegg. I was sceptical about it, but immediately took up the subject test for accounting and finance and cleared them. I solved around 90 questions in my first month on Chegg (December 2016).My doubts about this job vanished into thin air when I received the first payment promptly. Then onwards, I gradually picked up momentum and started improving my contribution on Chegg Q&A.
Q. How does Chegg help in your progress?
Chegg has helped me regain my confidence. I clearly understood the way education is imparted in the most developed economies of the world (USA). They have a curriculum which is highly practice-oriented. Solving questions which help these students is a matter of pride for Indian experts. On a personal note, Chegg has made me financially independent.
It helps us is knowing the latest developments in our subjects. Each thumbs-up motivates me, each thumbs-down cautions me.
Q. Could you tell us a memorable and challenging moment in your tenure?
It was initially a challenge to deliver what the student expected from us, most of them do not expect a plain vanilla answer, they expect a well-explained answer. This has helped me become more cautious as I began to attempt questions.
My CF score increased each passing month as I turned more meticulous and responsible for answering questions.
Q. How was the Expert Meet experience?
Expert meet – a good place to resolve our queries, to meet fellow experts, to get inspired by the top achievers, to motivate ourselves to do more. It definitely added flair to my experience. I look forward to many more meets in future.
Q. Would you recommend others to join as Expert Answerer? If yes, why?
I would recommend others to join Chegg (and a few have joined too), as this company is professionally managed, gives experts the space to improve their skills and contribute to the growth of the organisation besides contributing to their own growth.
