First, this is why you go to Native Speakers first. The term in question is not correct. The correct way of saying it is, "I am rooting for you." It is normally used in sports, meaning you are cheering for that person and/or team to win. An example, "I am rooting for the Lakers in the finals." It can also be used in support of another person who is going through a difficult time, facing a tough challenge in life or has medical issues. Example, "I am sorry to hear about your cancer, I am rooting for you." Like saying you wish them to get better and/or to do well. In short, it means you favor them to be successful.
When they say "I am rooting you" it means that person trusts your the most.
The phrase "I'm rooting for you," means that a person is supporting you and is wishing you the best.
"Rooting for" is to support someone or something.
The correct expression is 'I'm rooting for you ' meaning I totally support you. We use it to cheer our favourite team or athlete or to show our support to a person who is faced with a difficult time.
The correct way to say it is : I am rooting for which means to support someone

First, even though the teachers are not native speakers they can still give you the right answer. The question is not correct. The correct way of saying it is"I am rooting for you". It is normally used when you are trying to cheer someone so that they will build self-confidence. For example: 1. I am rooting for Nena and her teammates in the Volleyball league tonight. 2. I am rooting for Team Singapore in the finals. Second, you can also use it for supporting or comforting your friends when they are facing trials, problems, or challenges. For example. 1. I am sorry if you are facing some financial problems, I am rooting for you. 2. I am rooting for Mark and Sharon because they will have their final exams tomorrow.
The correct phrase is, “I’m rooting for you.” It means that you are supporting someone or your favorite team.
