The Video Math Tutor

Math is Now Fun and Exciting to Learn!

This section provides you with video self-tutorials in the areas of algebra. I include what is known as elementary algebra, slowly move up to intermediate algebra and finally to what is considered college algebra. It is equivalent to what is taught in high schools and colleges.

Newer releases are at the
bottom of this page.

To get the most out of these Lessons, you are HIGHLY recommended to first review the
FREE Basic Math lessons also provided on this web site. Doing well in algebra depends on knowing what I teach in those Lessons.

Both sample and a couple free complete video lessons and printable notes are featured here so you can have a good idea of what is being done in each Lesson.

YouTube Video Rentals are for 72 hours.


*Special Note to Teachers, Parents and Tutors: If you plan to use my videos for teaching/tutoring purposes, you need to buy the DVDs (not just watch the free videos on this page with your students). The good news is no additional school licenses are needed!

Students: Although not required, it is appreciated if you could buy at least one DVD lesson from me.

Your purchases allow me to dedicate more time in creating even MORE and BETTER videos for you! Thank you in advance!

NOTE: You would need to order Video On Demand files separately from DVDs or PDF files. They are handled by a separate ecommerce company.

Algebra: Introduction To Algebra

This lesson consists of providing you with a Self-Tutorial on what is algebra, what are variables, constants, coefficients, terms, and expressions. The tutor explains the use of proper notation, how to combine like terms, find the negation of an algebraic expression, how to evaluate an expression (by hand and by using your calculator), and finally, there is a VERY detailed section on how to translate English phrases into algebraic expressions.

Algebra: Formulas From Geometry

This lesson consists of providing you with a basic review of the formulas from geometry you will most likely encounter in algebra (and other math classes like trigonometry and calculus). This is NOT a detailed, formal lesson.

Formulas and concepts covered include:

Angles (complementary & supplementary)
Triangles (perimeter and area)
Isosceles triangle
Equilateral triangle
Right triangle
The Pythagorean Theorem
Similar triangles
Perimeter and area formulas for Quadrilaterals (square, rectangle, parallelogram, trapezoid). Some diagonal formulas too, where applicable.
Circles (radius, diameter, circumference, area)
Cube (diagonal of face, diagonal of cube, surface area and volume)
Rectangular box [or Rectangular Parallelepiped] (diagonal of box, surface area and volume)
Prisms (Volume)
Pyramids (Volume)
Cone (slant height, lateral surface area, total surface area, volume)
Cylinder (lateral surface area, total surface area, volume)
Sphere (surface area and volume)

BONUS Lesson [on DVD]: "Greek Alphabet" [see video below]

For use by math and science students, NOT for foreign language use.

Greek Alphabet

This video is to help students in math and science classes learn the Greek alphabet. The pronunciation is the English way of saying the letters in an American accent. It is NOT meant for those actually trying to learn Greek as a foreign language. Part of the "Formulas From Geometry" DVD [see above].

4 minutes of video. 1 PDF handout.

Algebra: Solving Linear Equations - Part 1: The Basics

Lesson consists of providing you with a Self-Tutorial on how to solve linear equations. Tutor discusses what is an Equation, Solution, Solution Set, Equivalent Equations, Identity, Contradictions, Conditional Equations, Linear Equations, the Standard Form of a Linear Equation. I show you how to actually SOLVE linear equations going step-by-step. I don't skip steps. I review some of the properties of Equality here too. I remind you to check the work done and how to solve linear equations using a calculator. At the end, you will know how to easily solve equations that look like:

2[y - (4y - 1)] = 5 - 9y

No word problems are done here. This is shown in DETAIL in Part 2 of the Lesson.

Algebra: Solving Linear Equations - Part 2: Applications

This lesson consists of providing you with a Self-Tutorial on how to solve typical linear word problems (story problems or applied problems). The tutor shows you how to solve for a specific variable in formulas. He also discusses how to covert a repeating decimal into a fraction (which was skipped in Basic Math: Lesson 6 -"Fractions") and will teach you how to convert units of measurement.

Examples of word problems done include:

Finding a number based on certain criteria.
Word problems involving some geometry (triangle, rectangle, circle).
Age problems.
Mixture problems.
Money problems (story of my life!).
Rate-Time-Distance problems.
Percent Equations/problems.
Ratio and Proportion (concepts and solving problems, including similar triangles).
Problems dealing with Unit Price.

Algebra: Solving Linear Inequalities

This lesson consists of providing you with a Self-Tutorial on how to solve typical linear inequalities of the form: ax + b > c (any of these symbols: <, >, ≤, ≥ can be used). The tutor goes over how to draw number line graphs. Also covered is the Double Inequality (a < x < b). Properties of Inequalities are reviewed. Answers are presented in Inequality Notation, Interval Notation, and Set Notation. Compound Linear Inequalities are solved and graphed. Finally, English Phrases are translated into inequalities and some Word Problems are solved.
