The Video Math Tutor

Math is Now Fun and Exciting to Learn!

This section provides you with FREE video self-tutorials in the areas of basic mathematics. I start out explaining all about numbers, basic arithmetic, order of operations, fractions and more. Be aware that the tutoring is designed for students from Seventh Grade through College. It is NOT for those in Kindergarten through Sixth Grade.

Newer releases are at the bottom of this page.

*Special Note to Teachers, Parents and Tutors: If you plan to use my videos for teaching/tutoring purposes, you need to buy the DVDs (not just watch the free videos on this page with your students). The good news is no additional school licenses are needed!

Students: Although not required, it is appreciated if you could buy at least one DVD lesson from me.

Your purchases allow me to dedicate more time in creating even MORE and BETTER videos for you! Thank you in advance!
