Who Benefits from Online Math Resources?

• If your child is behind in math, using online math resources allows you to get more tutoring for your child for the same amount of money.

• For bilingual households, math homework help can help children understand word problems and complex math texts in their own language, a service the math teacher may not be able to provide.

• If your child is struggling in a topic with which you are unfamiliar, math homework help may be the best bet to get them the help they need. Whether it is assistance with number theory, fractions or Advanced Placement (AP) calculus, you can find help online that may not be available near you.

• Do you home-school? Most parents are qualified to teach reading, history, English and reading intensive subjects. Where many parents lag is the ability to teach mathematics to their children beyond the elementary grades. Using math homework help to work on math assignments ensures your child learns what they need to know. This also gives parents time to tend to other children or develop their next lesson plan.

• Has your child been identified as in need of remedial math courses? Get intensive math homework help and online tutoring to try to catch up before accepting assignment to a remedial course. Use tutors to review topics with the child after homework is done to improve their comprehension. Extra sessions of math work over weekends and school breaks may help your child catch up with their class before classes resume.

• Use online math resources over Spring Break and the summer to prevent your child from forgetting their math lessons and struggling once school resumes.

• Is math a constant struggle? Does your child refuse to do flash cards or worksheets? Using math homework help shifts the child’s frustration away from the parent to the tutor while giving the task to someone trained to do so.

• Use online math as a refresher before school starts so that your child won't struggle through the catch-up session before the teacher starts presenting new material.

When Should You Rely on Personal Math Tutoring?

If your child is struggling to understand the math problems, in person math tutoring is a better choice. For example, a tutor can help the child understand the instructions and the information in word problems that a child with poor reading comprehension will struggle with.

Personal math tutoring is sometimes necessary to teach advanced concepts like algebraic identities and explain how the child should solve the problem.

Math tutoring is necessary if the child won't stay engaged with online lessons, whether bouncing over to video games or simply failing to pay attention. And a tutor can identify when the problem is a failure to understand terms used in the math lessons or procedural errors, as well as explain how to translate word problems into math problems.
