    Another site worth a look is Chesscademy, registration is required, but it is free. It's been setup by USCF NM Andrew Ng as a means of encouraging more people to play. The courses are text and video, the training section is tactical problems (more than just find the best move, more like find the sequence that leads to x).

    If you're really brave, though, you could head over to Lichess (pronounced like "libre") and challenge Andrew to a game, he plays under the handle Matetricks.

    BTW, for those unfamiliar with Lichess, anyone on the site with a real title (GM, IM, FM, etc.) has proven their identity to the site operator and really has that title. Some of them are open about who they are, like Andrew, and some aren't. The LM title is not "real" but given to people who only played on the site and were beating IMs and even the occasional GM.
