Webinars and videos are awesome visual supplements to learning math for adults.
Students who are comfortable with searching the web and getting a quick response find these tutorials valuable as well. But, have you considered a video tutor for your high school student, a student working in an independent study course, or someone prepping for an exam?
We were introduced to Virtual Nerd Tutor (an e-learning platform) on Twitter. Shortly afterwards, we participated in a contest that helped us win a limited access subscription from Moms Get Real!
The subscription was granted to one of our 10th grade students, Shonda L. She used her subscription to prepare for the Science portion of a test during the Summer of 2011.
“Virtual Nerd is a great tool for studying. They give informative details explaining each problem step by step. The instructors are well trained and with the many varieties of videos, you are sure to find the subject you are struggling in. They even give you “related topics” in which you may need help in. This site helped me not only pass my test but understand the material.” – Shonda
Shonda’s succinct response is very similar to the thorough, yet quick, attention getting approach of the Virtual Nerd Tutor founders, Joshua and Leo.
The Virtual Nerd Tutor founders are making a powerful contribution to the e-learning community with their vast experiences and commitment.
As an educator, I can attest to the fact that key planning, implementation, and assessment tools are in place on this site to help your student gain a deeper understanding!
Videos permit students to re-wind, refresh their thoughts, and reinforce skills! Try it, you might like it!
