Here's a random finance related question out there -

As a finance / frugal person myself - I see math education as a pretty big deal for my kids. So I am spending some extra resources to make sure my eldest do well in his Algebra class. I figure that a good math education is the foundation of all things financial. And having a good grasp of basic arithmetic and numeracy is probably the best life long gift I can get for him.

So lo and behold, my inquiries has been disappointing. An algebra tutor costs anything from $30-$50 an hour. After a year of this - I don't think I will have my $$$ for their college tuition.

Just to throw it out there, ideas as to how to save money on additional math education for the kids? I am looking at some options:

1. I tutor him myself, after a full day, spend an hour with him

2. I ask his teacher for any free after-school resources for algebra

3. I use an online algebra site like Khan Academy and StudyPug Algebra - this is a variant of (1), but I think it's probably less demanding for me.

4. Try to haggle with the Algebra tutor for a bulk rate? Prepay maybe?

Anyways, open to any other money saving advice
