Online Math Programs - Articles Surfing

Nowadays you can find a great variety of online math programs. Honestly, as a teacher, I don't believe that any subject, especially Math, can be tutored online. What's most important in tutoring is to be able to act in person. The only way I know to teach mathematics is face-to-face. From my point of view, the online math programs available are not good, all they do is to confuse the child with complicated charts and answers which without a teacher's explanation, would be quite discouraging and may have only a negative impact on the child.

However, there are some online math programs that have proved to be quite helpful. For instance, there are some sites offering free online multiplication games. This is a great way for your kid to practice multiplication drills and have fun at the same time. I hate to see children bored with calculating with paper and pen. I believe it's good if they also play such math games that help them learn more. Since the online game doesn't differs from the normal math, than I can only encourage youngsters to play it. But many other online math programs are simply trash. If you cannot learn your algebra in school then how can you learn it from online math setup? Of course, that would be impossible, so don't waste your time trying it.

There is a much better way to learn mathematics than online programs - you can try the local tutorial centers. There you will find qualified mathematics teachers who will be able to teach your child any math that he doesn't get. Furthermore, many schools nowadays offer tutoring and homework help. I would definitely agree that hiring a tutor is much more expensive than finding online math programs but you should consider what's best for your child. Online math doesn't give you the personal connections or the custom tailored explanations. Your child needs face to face contact. If your child has difficulty in English, history, math or any other subject, then you better consider tutoring instead of online math programs.
