Online Tutoring 

First, the student needs to download the free video-conferencing app called Zoom. (Instructions below). Let's say the student and I need to discuss a practice test. On my computer I’ll open up a copy of the practice test. Then I'll  share my screen” with the student  so that he/she can view the same file. As I explain a problem, I'll use a digital pen to write directly onto the screen. For example, I'll mark up the diagram of a geometry problem. Or, next to an algebra problem, I'll write out, step-by-step, how to solve the equation. I can also annotate—underline key words—for a reading passage or a grammar question.  Through “ screen sharing,” the student will be able to see everything that I mark up. Students can even record the lesson to watch later.

Internet tutoring has many important benefits.
1) Whenever there’s inclement weather, if the student is a bit sick, or if the student simply wants to save transportation time—internet tutoring is a convenient alternative to face-to-face tutoring. (Students might be able to save up to 1 hour of commuting time!) 
Also, during the holidays, whenever students go out of town for college visits, during snow days, during senior year, when students will have even less time to do SAT/ACT homework, internet tutoring is a life-saver.

Thank you for listening.

Students: To Set Up Online Tutoring
1) Download the free Zoom app for your computer clicking on the following link. Once on the webpage, download the version at the very top of the page, called “Zoom Client for Meetings”:
Don't download the mobile version: the screen on your phone is too small. (Students, in the previous sentence, note the use of the "here's proof" colon!)
2) At our scheduled meeting time, I will email you a link to our meeting room. Just click on this link.
3) Before every internet session, take picture​s​ of all the math questions ​that you want me to discuss—questions ​from ​a​ practice test ​or from a math packet—​and t​hen ​email me ​these ​​​pictures. This way, I can ​see your work and analyze what you did wrong. Do all of this BEFORE the session, so that we don't have to take time away from the actual session.
4) During the lesson, if you want to take a screenshot:
On a
Mac, press these 3 buttons simultaneously, command, shift, 3
