Save tutoring money by turning to tech. To keep your student on the right track, instead of hiring a costly expert, check out a few apps and Web sites to help deliver those A's. CNET's Kara Tsuboi has more in this Tech Minute.

-If your child is specifically looking for math help then Tabtor.com is a great place to start. It's an iPad program that provides individualized lessons for your students, age kindergarten through 6th grades. It's all multimedia-based to make learning fun. There are videos, games, rewards, and most importantly, feedback from real teachers on a regular basis. After the free two-week trial, membership to Tabtor is 50 bucks a month. For older students who need a little extra help studying but might be short on time, check out the $5 iOS app Outlines Outloud. To get it to work, students need to create their study notes in the form of an outline, once they do and put it in a specific drop box folder, then Outlines Outloud will convert it to spoken word. It sounds a little something like this. -Dark Ages equals Early Middle Ages, 500 AD to 1000 AD. -Great for auditory learners and people who wanna review notes while on the go. In San Francisco, I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET.com for CBS News.
