The Khan Academy (offering 1100+ free tutorial videos)

by Kelly Walsh on March 31, 2010


Over 1000 (free) videos “covering everything from basic arithmetic and algebra to differential equations, physics, chemistry, biology and finance.”

Salman Khan is a trip. With an MBA from Harvard, and a slew of engineering, comp sci, and math degrees, he could easily be raking in major bucks, but instead he quit his day job in Sept 2009 to record educational videos for his self-started Khan Academy.

The Khan Academy is an organization with the mission of providing a high quality education to anyone, anywhere. In some ways, the Khan Academy is comparable to professional online tutoring. The web site isn’t pretty, but the content is receiving a lot of accolades, and a growing number of students are benefiting from Khan’s work. The IRS-recognized 501c3 not-for-profit organization is receiving increasing, deserved notice, such as the news piece below.

This FAQ page explains more. Stop by the site and check out one of Khan’s educational videos. Select from over 1100 videos (so far)!

Kudos to you, Mr. Khan, and best of luck with this inspiring endeavor.

Vera – The Khan Academy tutorial can probably help a lot. Of course. there are also many tutoring resources available online – just search for “Math ACT tutoring online” or something similar and be sure to look for services that offer some sort of ratings or reviews so you can seek out the most affordable options that have a proven track record. Good luck on the ACT!
