Tutoring Resources 

Below is a list of free tutoring resources. Some of these tools will help put together lesson plans, some will provide the lesson material, others are for test preparation, and some are for students to study on their own time after tutoring.

1. IDroo Basic

IDroo is an online whiteboard tool that’s free for basic subscription users. With IDroo you can work out equations, present diagrams, edit sentences, and explain any concept in a visual manner. This is perfect for tutoring students remotely if schedules or geography don’t allow for in-person sessions.

The basic version allows you to create ten boards, import the first two pages of documents such as guides and essay examples, and gives you 50 MB of storage space. As for tools, the Basic version comes with the same tools and functions as the Premium versions.

2. Khan Academy

Khan Academy is one of the biggest names in online learning. If you are a teacher with students that require a little extra attention, Khan Academy is the perfect resource to introduce to your students.

Khan offers completely free, open online courses covering a wide variety of subjects including mathematics, science, computing, arts, social sciences, history, and even test preparation.

The subjects are also separated by grade-level difficulty so the lessons will be tailored to the student’s needs.

3. Mometrix Academy

Mometrix Academy is a free online test preparation tool full of review videos for a wide range of subjects. Not only does Mometrix cover college admissions tests (SAT, ACT, etc.), but it also includes subjects such as business management, nursing, graduate school tests, legal, finance, and much more.

Once you’ve gone through their review videos, Mometrix also offers paid study guides and flashcards to further help with test preparation.

4. SmartTutor Free Resources

If your elementary students are struggling with standard worksheets and other traditional learning methods, you can turn to this online resource to offer them new material. SmartTutor produces lots of free educational games, reading lessons, flashcards, and other visually stimulating tools built to help with lesson retention.

These games are great as a supplementary tool for classroom lessons and students that require extra help in specific subjects.

TutorsClass is an online tutoring platform that allows tutors to work with their students in an online classroom. TutorClass also offers tools for use in these classrooms such as online whiteboards, live chat functions, file uploads, and math formula creation tools.

Tutors using the platform are paid the entire per student charge through the program in most cases, except under the basic free program. The basic plan allows for five free classes per month, but TutorsClass collects a 20% commission per lesson before the money is paid to the teacher.

6. TakeLessons Academic Tutoring Resources

TakeLessons offers free resources and articles for students looking to improve their math, writing skills, and languages. On top of educational articles, Take Lessons also has interesting blog posts on education tools, student/teaching tips, and resource lists.

If you need additional help after going through their articles, they also have a tutor database to find the right help in your subject.

7. YouTube

YouTube is the perfect resource for tutoring lessons due to the sheer number of tutoring and educational channels. Some of these channels include entire lessons, while others offer quick introductions to subjects. These videos are not only great for use during lessons, but also as lessons themselves.

Here’s a list of some YouTube channels you should check out:

Teacher Needs

Products here are designed to help teachers with classroom-related activities such as grading, managing the classroom, lesson planning, etc. Professional Learning tools used by individual teachers are also located here; school-wide Professional Development tools implemented by administrators are located in School Operations.


Curriculum Products

Want to search by grade level? Just select a category, then filter by Age & Learner.

Products listed here help educators teach concepts and skills. Standards play an important role in curriculum products, especially with the evolution of Common Core standards. However, many products do not analyze or publish what standards they align to, leaving teachers to do this job.

Products that support teaching, but are not content focused (i.e. Lesson Planning tools) are listed in Classroom Needs.
