Online Learning with Fusion Math:

Recent tutoring session from 3/14/2020 posted to our slack channel:

For those of you who are unfamiliar with remote learning platforms, they are surprisingly effective!  Following is a brief description of the applications and tools used. If after reading you are still unsure, we would be happy to work with you on a short demo prior to a session to ensure you and your student are comfortable.

We can support your student by continuing with their core classes, preparing for standardized tests, or even working on a special project.  Although, we see no silver lining in this health crisis, we do believe in making the most of whatever situation we find ourselves in.  This unexpected time away from school can be used as an opportunity to shore up foundational skills.  We are readying ourselves with supplemental materials and services to meet your student's learning goals.

How It Works - 1: Install zoom (once) 2: Email us your notes 3: Click a link and connect:

In a nutshell, students would install the zoom app on their laptop or tablet. 

Then, prior to their session, they would email us a .pdf of their work.  To scan with a smartphone (easiest way), I like really Turboscan ~ approx $6.00.  Just don't buy a "subscriprion" app.   Students can also text us pictures (also very easy)!

Then the tutor will send a meeting invitation link via email or text. Students would then join the meeting on their device.  

Once connected, we share our screen with the student and bring up their notes on our notes app so we can annotate them.  Or we can simply write on blank pages.  I use the app Notability - it's great.  

The student hears our voice and sees what we write.  Once the session is over, the tutor will email .pdfs of the created notes.

Below is screenshot of notes I made when working online with a student a couple of weeks ago:
The student watched me make the notes and explain as I created them.  They're colorful and engaging!
