Voice on an EA – Pooja Sharma
Q. How did you begin your journey with Chegg?
I was looking for a job which would provide flexible working hours and an opportunity to do work from home. Then one of my friends told me about Chegg. I cleared the test, registered and started working on the Chegg Question and Answer board as an expert of mathematics. I spend ample time answering maximum questions on the Chegg Q&A board.
Q. What was so fascinating about working with Chegg?
Receiving questions from students across the world fascinates me as it gives me a global insight on the subject. Along with the increasing knowledge, it makes me financially stable. It makes me an independent and confident woman.
Q. Share your experience with the Chegg Q&A board?
The journey has been fantastic. I answer a wide variety of questions on the Chegg Q&A board – all related to my subject. I am an M.Phil. in mathematics and have also done my Bachelor’s and Master’s in mathematics from Delhi University. Answering easy and difficult questions and helping students gives me a deep sense of satisfaction.Once I received a tricky question and the concept was quite complex. I noted down the question and studied the concept so that I would be ready to answer such questions in the future. While working on the Chegg Q&A Board and helping students learn the subject, I am also learning new concepts each day. I do feel proud when the students appreciate my work and give thumbs up for that.
Q. How is your daily routine.
I wake up early around 5:00 in the morning and answering on the Chegg Q&A board till 7:00 AM. Then I do my daily chores like to prepare my daughter for school, cook for the family etc. When my daughter goes for school and my husband for his office, I begin to work on the Chegg Q&A board. I hit the gym in the evening and take tuitions. I answer on the Chegg Q&A board till midnight.
Q. What else do you enjoy apart from answering on the Chegg Q&A board?
I’m a gym freak, also enjoy watching Bollywood movies. I am fond of Punjabi songs. I enjoy life to the fullest and rejuvenate myself well enough to hit the Chegg Q&A board.
Q. Cite a memorable moment
With the earnings from Chegg, I bought my own car, a Pearl white Honda City V on 5th July 2017. My car always reminds me to give my best to Chegg. Chegg makes me think BIG.
Q. Cite a challenging moment
The real challenge for me is always to attempt a hard question and to get an appreciation for it. Once a student posted a tough question and the challenge was not just about solving it but explaining it to the student.In mathematics, though we have a direct formula, the concept and derivation of the formula are complex and critical to understanding. I explained the derivation and provided a quality answer to that question. The student replied with thumbs-up and that was the nicest part.
Q. Please share something about your personal life.
I am married and have a daughter, who is 3 years old. I live in Delhi and my husband is working as a manager at Sonalika, Noida. He is very supportive. We have a good family time during our weekends. I keep myself busy on the Chegg Q&A board during the week.
Q. If Chegg gives you a full-time opportunity, would you avail?
I am very excited and happy with Chegg. Definitely! It is a pleasure working for Chegg.
