Free tutoring math online will help your child learn to multiplication. Every problem within this post has a tutoring for math video, so your child can develop the crucial skill of multiplying large numbers. The word problems involve fun situations with animals that add to the interest and make the math more enjoyable. First, your children will learn to use an area box, which is an easy way of keeping each number in the correct place value position. Next, your children will learn how to use skip counting any time they forget their multiplication facts. All the while, your child will have the support of the free tutoring for math video.

This post is part of a series designed to offer homework help in math, so that ANYONE can successfully multiply large numbers. The first book, (Area Multiplication: Book 1) teaches how to multiply a two digit number by another two digit number, as in 86 x 97. The second book, (Area Multiplication: Book 2) teaches how to multiply a two digit number by a three digit number, as in 94 x 368. The third book, (Area Multiplication: Book 3) teaches how to multiply a two digit number by a four digit number, as in 37 x 6,375. This is the fourth book (Area Multiplication: Book 4). It teaches how to multiply a three digit number by a four digit number, as in 694 x 6,368. And, the fifth book, (Area Multiplication: Book 5) teaches how to multiply with decimals.

I developed Area Multiplication specifically for my students who did NOT know their multiplication facts and could not multiply large numbers. I have had incredible results! These strategies work with children who have ADHD, Dyslexia, and other learning disabilities. Virtually every one of my students who has learned this strategy has passed the standards based assessment for multiplying large numbers.

## Does your child struggle with multiplying large numbers, because he or she does not know all their multiplication facts?

The problem below is called a “**Watch Me**” challenge. This Watch Me challenge introduces the strategies of skip counting and Area Multiplication. More importantly, the video demonstrates how to use these two strategies while solving a multiplication problems. I encourage you to watch this first video with your children and to discuss the strategies. Then have your child write this first problem in their math notebook.

The problem below is called a “**Work with Me**” challenge. This challenge encourages your child to work step-by-step along side me to solve this challenge. All of the following challenges are called “**On Your Own**” challenges. However, many of my students who struggle with multiplication will do five or six of the “On Your Own” challenges as a “Work with Me” challenge. They play the video, pause it, and copy the strategies until they feel comfortable and confident. Doing the problems as a “Work with Me” challenge is like having a personal tutor.
