sofatutor is an online library of Algebra lesson videos, interactive practice problems, and problem set worksheets. Students watch animated videos explaining complex algebra content, answer a variety of problem types, print and complete corresponding worksheets, and have the option to chat, one-on-one, with a credentialed teacher through sofatutor’s messaging tool. sofatutor is available at a monthly rate.
Students begin using sofatutor by logging in and creating an account. Once logged in, they select which topic within Algebra 1 they wish to learn about such as equations, absolute value, or trigonometry. They select and watch that teaches a mathematical concept from that topic.
Once a student has watched a video, they answer accompanying practice problems. Students chose to answer questions from a variety of question types, including fill-in, highlight, match, and multiple choice style questions. They then select the right answer. softatutor provides correct answers and feedback for incorrectly answered questions. After completing the practice problems, students have the option to download and print video- corresponding worksheets. sofatutor provides correct answers to the worksheets for students to self-correct their work after completion. If a student is struggling, they open the Homework Chat dashboard and instant message a credentialed teacher for help. Students and teachers share a virtual whiteboard to simultaneously chat and work through the difficult math problems.
