Even I worked with students 2/3 times a week, my students need more practice at home. I usually ask them to practice more at home to enhance their skill. For language practice, www.bussu.com helped my students. They have free section and it is pretty good for beginners. Paid section is even better for advanced students. For elementary math students, I use www.nekopy.com. Which is developed by Japanese school teachers and it is very useful to improving basic calc. skill with animation and fun games. I will update when I find more useful sites for tutoring.

There are many websites available that are free to use. www.khanacademy.org is a very popular website that offers tutorials in many subjects.
1. Hyperphysics This website is basically a concept map of every physics topic, and I mean every. It's not a comprehensive guide to all of them, but it provides a basic overview of pretty much everything you could ever want to know about physics. It's not a "Physics for Dummies" site, so if you're struggling, you'll still need a competent tutor. That being said, if you want to look up and equation or definition, or just learn a little more about something your teacher only mentioned, it is the best resource I know. 2. Paul's Online Math Notes This website offers extremely detailed lessons on Algebra, Calculus I, II, and III, and Differential Equations. To be honest, I learned most of what I know about Calculus through Paul, not my professors. I'll even admit that many students can use this in place of a tutor. Paul's teaching style isn't for everyone, though, so many people will still need some extra help. 3. SparkNotes... read more
