  1. I have recently been solicited to help two 8th grade students with their FLVS courses. I'm not a huge proponent of FLVS and am approaching this quite cautiously. I've sent a list of questions to the parents to see what their specific expectations are, both from the students, and me. Does anyone have experience with a similar situation?

  4. I have missed this group very much and read some threads when I am able. My last child recently graduated, and now, I am actively looking after my mother since the passing of my beloved father. Life has taken a new direction, but I remember the hive with deep fondness and much thankfulness for all that you have taught me. I have some news that I want to share here, knowing that because you shared this journey with me, you can appreciate it, My son, who is now 22, was impossible to motivate as a writer during our homeschooling journey. There were many struggles and much frustration, both on his part, and mine, during those years. He. Would. Not. Write. After graduation and a gap year, he went on to a top private university, and during his first semester, wrote in excess of 50 papers. (Yes, God is real, and has a GREAT sense of humor!!! ) A few weeks into his second semester, he decided to declare his major: a double major in English and History, with a double minor in Economics and Political Science. I thought it was a joke. He returned home for the summer and worked retail in the evenings. One afternoon a week, for four weeks, he tutored a struggling college student with her summer term paper. Last week she submitted the paper, and I won't lie to you; I've been very concerned that she may be unhappy if her grade doesn't match her expectation (READ: the money she paid for instruction). My son just telephoned me and told me that her grade has come back. She scored a perfect 100. I am so very proud of this incredible young woman and the time and energy she invested to earn her perfect score. It also humbles my soul to see that the seeds that were planted in my son, eventually matured into fruit. Now, he's planting his own seeds and using his talent to help others reach their potential. I share this with you to encourage you. Don't despair. Your child is listening. Your child IS learning. And believe it or not, your child is paying attention, but he is growing at his own pace. You may not see the results immediately, but be patient. Fruit which ripens on the tree is always sweeter than fruit which is plucked too soon. Just keep swimming!
  5. FWIW, my kids have done extremely well with the upgraded version. The upgraded features do not seem to have caused any problems with laziness or lack of retention, but instead, have kept them involved and interested. I know that many don't consider TT a rigorous course, but for my "non-mathy" students, it's been great, and has given great results on SAT. Happy day!
  6. Thank you so much for this reminder. Frankly, I'm a bit annoyed with the job they do of keeping their customers informed. I missed out on the geometry upgrade a while back and had to buy the 2.0 at full freight.
