A variety of free and paid resources to help students struggling with Mathematics.
With the recent completion of the first quarter for many K-12 students, and the pending completion of the first semester for many Higher Ed students, I thought it would be a good time to investigate web based tutoring and help options. I’ll focus first on the fundamentals – Math (this week) and English (next week), and possibly follow up with a third post focused on resources for other subjects.
I checked out a lot of the many options available online and selected those that looked worthwhile. I’ve grouped them into Free and Paid options, and provided some brief observations about each. If you’re looking for math help for yourself or a child or friend, these sites should be able to provide some of the help you seek.
I do not have direct personal experience with all of these sites, but I selected only sites that appeared to be highly professional and legitimate (there were plenty of other sites that I discarded because they did not appear so, or I had come across negative reviews). Some of these sites are well known, and I am confident that all of them should provide functional services (of course, if anyone knows otherwise, please comment and fill us in!).
: These folks are well known – they’ve become quite popular because they work with many educational institutions as a supplemental support tool, but they also offer individual tutoring plans. Click here to learn more.
: This site guarantees “to improve academic performance in less time and at a lower cost than any other program”.
