Online Math Tutoring Software:
Ziteboard and Zoom

Click Here to Book an Online Tutoring Session!

When we meet for an online math tutoring session, you will have two meeting options available to you: 

  • Zoom Call with Ziteboard
  • Phone Call with Ziteboard

If you decide to do a Zoom call, please log into the Zoom room 5 minutes before our tutoring session is scheduled to start. 

If I do not see you in the Zoom room, I will assume that you would like to have a phone call session and I will call your phone number to start our tutoring session. 

Ziteboard

Ziteboard is an online whiteboard system that is accessible on any device. I like using it for math tutoring because it makes it easy to write out the steps as we solve math problems. 

To use Ziteboard, please do the following BEFORE our tutoring session:

  1. Create a free account at www.ziteboard.com.
  2. Watch this video to make sure you understand how it works.
  3. Practice using the software and uploading pictures to the whiteboard. 

We will use Ziteboard for all of our math tutoring sessions.

However, we will also need a way to communicate while we are working on the whiteboard. So, we can do a Zoom call or we can do a phone call to communicate verbally.

I recommend a Zoom call because Zoom has some very helpful features (like recording the meeting and screensharing) that make it easier to tutor.

However, if you do not have any experience with Zoom and you feel a little nervous about using two new technologies at the same time, a phone call with Ziteboard will work just fine.

Zoom

Zoom is an online video conferencing software that I've used for hundreds of online meetings. I like using it for math tutoring because it allows us to share our screens and record the tutoring sessions. 

To use Zoom, please do the following BEFORE our tutoring session:

  1. Download Zoom (if you have never used it before).
  2. Watch this video to make sure you know how it works.
  3. Create a free account and practice using the software.

Zoom is ideal if...

  • You are working with a desktop/laptop computer
  • You have online homework
  • You want to record our tutoring session
  • You are doing group tutoring

Zoom is not ideal if...

  • You are attending the tutoring session from your phone
  • You have a slow internet connection

If you have a slow internet connection or you are attending the tutoring session from your phone, please opt for a phone call instead of using Zoom. 

If you have any questions, let me know and I look forward to tutoring with you!
