I am looking for Educative physics and math chat rooms that welcomes beginners and questions I found some on irc but they are either too advanced or have people who don't welcome mistakes. Anyone knows a chat room with good online community?

I am assuming you are referring to a forum besides physics forum right? I am looking for something that isn't based on homework help but on tutoring and sharing ideas.

PF is not based just on homework help. While this is an important part of the forum, you are also welcomed to ask your questions about physics in general. You may want to consult forum rules to know what kinds of ideas can be shared freely and which will get you into troubles.

What you are asking is analogous to visiting Chanel HQ and asking where you can find the best perfumes. :biggrin:

pattern? because I have trouble with this a lot of times and end up not doing it especially if it was not a text book question but a general question.

Then you are free to post your question in one of the many other forums we offer here. HW help is just a slice.

We have chat open all day on Sundays. PF does not have any plans to provide paid tutoring services. There are thousands of generous members who are willing to help you for free.

Just note that chat is a social event, we DON'T speak about physics there.

You can create your own room and try to invite someone, it may work. But the main room is just a chit chat.

Yes I know but I mean like tutoring covering a full course not one question, It is just a suggestion but if you are willing to have tutors that tutor people through like algebra one or basics of physics then it would be really great (just a suggestion)

Yes, in any of our subforums where that pattern does not automatically appear when you post. For example, here:

That pattern only appears in the https://www.physicsforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=152"

We prefer our forum format over a live chat because a forum makes a permanent record of any discussion. Then others can view the discussion later at any time, and can offer more help, correct errors, etc. Also, I don't think a live chat could be moderated as effectively.

Plus, someone asking question on chat when there is no one there (and at some times of the day that would be typical situation) won't get any answer. Same question posted at forum will usually get an answer, just several hours later. Better late than never.
