I have been a private tutor for over 15 years, including the teacher for several small private homeschools from grades 3 through 8, and the solo teacher for homeschool students through 12th grade. I also own a tutoring company and have authored several test prep manuals and other school materials. I currently homeschool my own two children.
Use what works for you! Every child has different abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. It's so important to make sure that those strengths are celebrated, especially in the early years, so that they don't think of learning as a chore but instead as a vast puzzle that they have the skills to solve.

I enjoy gardening, travel, reading, and binge-watching TV with the dog on my lap after my kids go to sleep!
