Real-Time Online Math Tutoring

Online math tutoring is accomplished using an internet voice connection, me using a graphics tablet to draw geometric shapes or write equations that are visible on my computer screen, and free software, (Gotomeeting), that allows me to share my screen in real-time with the student. An online session works much the same way as a face-to-face session with the tutor using pencil and paper.

The only software needed by the student is free: Gotomeeting, which can be downloaded at www.joingotomeeting.com.

The only hardware needed by the student is a computer or mobile device with a high speed internet connection. The student does NOT need a digital graphics tablet.


Advantages that online math tutoring sessions have over face-to-face.

All sessions are recorded

No travel is needed

No meeting rooms are required

Easier scheduling

Less expensive than in-person tutoring

It allows for tutoring on a shorter time interval than one hour.

If a tutoring session requires an in-person setting, sessions of less than one-hour don't make much sense. It sometimes can take 30 minutes to get to a session.

With online sessions, one can have 30 minutes, or even shorter sessions instead of one-hour sessions.

This can be extremely beneficial, especially for those with short attention spans.
