Online Learning with Fusion Math:

Recent tutoring session feedback from a tutor posted to our slack channel:

For those of you who are unfamiliar with remote learning platforms, they are *really* 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 are a couple of screenshot of notes we made when working online with a students:
The students watched us make the notes and explain as we created them.  They're colorful and engaging and the student receives a copy at the end of the session!
