How to Find Free Help with Algebra Homework

Many students find algebra, one of the most complex forms of math. Its forms, and methods, often make no sense to students, besides turning simple math, into an overly complex mess. For those students, help is often needed to understand this form. And there is a lot of it to be found. Like most things, it is just a matter of knowing where to look. That is what this will be focused on helping with, where to look.

  1. Tutors
  2. Tutorials
  3. Study Groups
  4. Video Guides


Tutors can be some of the best help, as they work one on one, this can help a student struggling with algebra. Often Student support sites will offer these and some offer either a free session, or are funded as so they can provide free tutors, online to help the student. If a student needs just a short time help, the free session can be plenty of help. If the student is having a hard time understanding algebra completely, then a funded site would be of more help.


Many support sites offer free tutorials, that can help by walking the student through the different algebraic formulas. There are also other places that can offer free tutorials; many schools have these on their sites, especially Colleges and Universities. What is nice about a tutorial, is they are written by someone that knows the math, and can explain them in a way, that is easier for more students to understand. And the fact most of these, do not cost, makes them more appealing to more students as well.

Study Groups

Study groups are groups of students helping each other, sharing what they are good at. These are excellent forms of help for all students, and the cost is helping one of the members with what you are good at.

Video Guides

A newer form, is being found on sites like YouTube, where math experts and educators, are making videos to help students. This combines a tutor and a tutorial together in an understandable format. These provide the student with a medium they can listen, and watch, the instructor perform the math and get a more personal touch. Students can also comment on what they are not understanding, and hopefully the instructor, can do a video that will cover that issue as well. But they do provide an excellent medium to help the student with their algebra.


  • Jack (TX): This is one of the best free educational resources I have used this year. From samples to tutorials, they have it all. Keep it up!

  • Mary (UK): Thank you so much for helping pass my Algebra college class. I was always getting low grades because I missed several classes due to sickness. I appreciate all you've done to help me.

  • Jessica (NC): I did not have a budget to spend on ordering a custom written assignment for my literature class, so I started looking for free options and found this blog. As a result I was able to write my paper myself and get a good grade.

  • Jonathan (NJ): The best educational resource ever! I was totally stuck with my physics assignment and your manuals saved my grade and my life. I will definitely recommend you to all of my friends.
