Recommend Senator Simitian review free resources available to students and the general public.
Tutors and remedial instruction are pricey. For students whose learning is not maximized by classroom instruction, the option of independent, off-campus backup study can work very well.
One such extraordinary resource Khan Academy, a Los Altos non-profit driven by passion and brilliance:
Web Link.
Khan offers 2100+ videos (presented in brief, sequential segments) for core subjects including math, physics, history, science, humanities, finance and more.
Extensive test prep including SAT's is offered.
Check it out!
