What if it says "Leave a message," not "Chat with us"?

If the bottom right corner of your screen says "Leave a message," that means I'm offline.  Click on it and send me the text of the problem you need help with.  Please mention that you're in Algebra 1 (or 8th grade math, or pre-algebra, or whatever the name of your math class is).  It will ask you for your name and e-mail address.  I value your privacy and will not share or sell your e-mail address.
