WASHINGTON – Google wants to help you out in a new way.

It now offers live, one-on-one video calls with experts in all sorts of things.

With Helpouts from Google, you can take cooking lessons, get math tutoring and toss questions to a plumbing expert.

Some video chats are available right away and others you can schedule in advance for a time that’s convenient for you.

Some experts charge a flat fee while others charge by the minute — but many chats are available free.

Helpouts has a 100 percent money back guarantee and user reviews help you decide which chats might be best for you.

You can also sign up as an expert to give Helpouts to others.
