About Our Tutorials
Our weekly drop in tutorials are run by certified Alberta teachers and are for Alberta high school students who need help with Math 10C, Math 20-1, Math 20-2, Math 30-1, Math 30-2, or Math 31. This is a group tutorial format held online where the teacher moves around the “room” spending one-on-one time with each student. The ratio of teachers to students is 1:5. We use the Demio platform for our tutorials; no download required by the student.
In the online classroom, there is a screen that students can see that the teacher will use to show their work. The teacher will also use a microphone to speak with the students. There is a chat window in each room the students can use to communicate with the teacher, however a microphone and possibly a webcam may make that easier.
To ask a question, the student can type it in the chat window. If it’s easier to use the microphone to ask the question, the student can just type that they have a question to ask. When the teacher gets to the student, the student can use the microphone to ask the question. The teacher will answer the questions in the order they are received and will ‘move’ around the room answering questions as they come up.
