There are numerous free online resources for linear algebra. In the past, I used linear algebra textbook by Jim Hefferon. You may like a more interactive textbook, such as: Interactive Linear Algebra. Also there are numerous videos on YouTube that explain specific topics. I linked aomw vids on the eigenvectors and diagonalization under Remarks for suggested homework below. Dan Margalit, Joseph Rabinoff
