Saved by the...YouTube?

Yep. Instead of being saved by the bell, you can start using this new phrase far more often.

I bet there are a bunch of you out there like me, trying so hard in school, yet sometimes not understanding the teacher or the concept they are trying to teach.

So for those of you, if you haven't already figured this out: YouTube is more than just music videos.

For a while now, I've been coming back home after a confusing day in Chemistry or Pre-Calculus and have had no clue on how to start my homework, let alone pass my test the next week.

Then one day the idea suddenly occurred to me, "Maybe there are tutoring videos on YouTube!"

And behold: they actually were.

So now you have a whole new way to learn difficult or confusing concepts. You can even create a playlist of videos to study before a quiz or test!

Use it how you want to. Just search for a concept you want to learn about, like: "Limits in calculus". No need to get all specific and type "What are limits in Pre-Calculus?" because most times it won't show you what you are looking for.

Just use keywords in your search that go with directly what you want to learn about. but don't make it so general either, like: "Calculus". Or else you will get tons of videos right and left of things not pertaining to your particular search.

I hope you take advantage of these useful tips!
