The rise of AI-powered homework apps is revolutionizing the way students approach their studies, posing a significant challenge to established tutoring franchises like Kumon. AI tutors can complete students’ homework for them ensuring they learn nothing — and the bigger problem is that China dominates the market.

TechCrunch reports that in recent years, AI tutors began to emerge in the education sector. These apps, such as Answer AI and Gauth, are leveraging the power of large language models like ChatGPT to provide students with personalized assistance for a wide range of subjects, from calculus to history. The convenience and affordability of these AI-driven solutions are attracting students who previously relied on expensive private tutors or time-consuming YouTube tutorials.

Evan, a high school sophomore from Houston, exemplifies the shift towards AI tutors. By subscribing to Answer AI, he has been able to tackle his Advanced Placement math homework with ease, saving a significant amount of money compared to his previous $60-per-hour private tutor. “The tutor’s hourly cost is about the same as Answer AI’s whole year of subscription,” Evan explained. “So I stopped doing a lot of [in-person] tutoring.”
