Tutpup.com is a free educational website that allows children to play timed math or spelling games against competitors from around the world- in real time! Tutpup.com is geared toward children ages 5 to 14, it is great for practicing skills at home or in the classroom.

As you will notice from the image above the website asks you to login or join now. I did neither, I simply began to play by clicking on one of the following categories: Maths 101, Maths Mix, Algebra, Times Tables, or Spelling. I was then able to specify the type (operation) and level (difficulty). Once you’ve selected the category, type, and level, your game will begin. You will be asked to wait for more players and you can play with children from all over the world.

If you decide to register, you will be able to personalized your icon by choosing a color, an animal, a number, and your country’s flag to represent you during game play. Your icon will be shown each time you compete, as long as you log in first.

Other benefits include being in the Tutpup Hall of Fame and having your own personal Win Wall. Registered players can also create games for others to join. A parent e-mail address must be entered when registering. Shortly after registering, an e-mail will be sent to the parent requesting that the account be verified. Once your account is verified, you can log in to the site and start competing! I like this feature as it involves parent consent and who knows maybe some parents may want to play.With the holidays just around the corner, this might be a good way for students to practice their skills while not in the classroom.

This is also great way to reinforce skills taught in the classroom. Teachers may register for a teacher account which gives them access to helpful tools such as student management and class reports. Students must enter a class code provided by the teacher in order to appear in the teacher’s dashboard. Students do not need a parent e-mail address to register if they have a class code. Teachers could have a contest to see who can get the most number of wins, or let the students mark on a world map the locations of their competitors!
