The Power of Online Math Tution

The advances in technology and the web have made finding what you need in the world so much easier. The web has also made finding help and services a simple click away. For students this is a godsend, help with any aspect of their education is available online 24/7.

The rise of online educational websites has spawned new opportunities for providers to offer custom made math homework help services. This is really a powerful and exciting advance on how students learn Math. Compare it to even 15 years ago, if you could not understand the lesson in class and could not figure out the topic in the textbook you effectively fell behind and had to struggle to catch-up now with the web and the services available any student can search a myriad of informative website until they get the exact information they need.

Traditionally students were passively accepting the information provided by teachers and textbooks as their main source of learning math. With self service online math tutor services the students now have the control to dictate the pace of their learning and the ability to actively choose the topics and subjects they wish to learn. This makes math much more engaging and challenging for students. It also follows the principle of No Child Left Behind as all students can now control the lesson and tailor it to their needs.

The other great boon of Online Math Tutor services is their accessibility and affordability. Personal math tutors used to be the preserve of the wealthy but with online math tutors now costing as little as $25 per year cost is no longer a barrier. As to accessibility this is what the web is all about, opening up information and education to the masses. It’s like having your own personal math tutor on stand-by 24/7.

These advantages should not really come as a surprise to anybody as the banks, travel agents, ticket agents and every shop in the world has figured out people like to self serve, they like to browse and read and check out whatever they want when they want it and this is also true in math tutors.

So next time you need math homework help and the your first thought is to get a math tutor at $30 per hour, first just check out what kind of services are available online and you’ll see the true power of the Online Math Tutor.

Slow Progress and Motivation

We are slowing picking up customers and our user base continues to grow. Of course I wish we had more which would give us more resourses and enable us to expand our offering but in the real world where the banks are still closed for business all growth has to be self financed. This means we need the users before we can expand.
In an effort to convert more of our traffic to actual users we're hearing that Silverlight is a constraint for some people. Now I think Silverlight is a wonder of science and enables you to do so much more on the web. In my opinion in 2-3 years this will be the de-facto standard. But unfortunately we might be just a little ahead of the game "on the bleeding edge" as it's called.
We have decided to hedge our bets a bit. We are currently developing a slimmed down AJAX version of our content pages to allow people in restrictive environments view our content. Now the full experience will always be Silverlight and I'm willing to bet that in a couple of years this is an obsolete move but now we need to live with the technologies that people use, not what we think they should use.
So for all those users who would like to see what we can do but can't (or won't) use Silverlight we have a solution coming down the track...
