  1. That does make a difference. I wish we lived close by. I only charge $15 for up to a 1.5 hour session per week. Of course, everyone I tutor is the child of a friend of mine. I would definitely give you the same friend rate!
  2. I feel a one-on-one tutor is always better than an online class, so that would decide it for me. I'm not trying to toot my own horn, but one of my students told his mom after our first tutoring session, he could already tell he would learn a lot more from me than what they had been trying to do online. I am teaching my own son and tutoring others with the Holt 2007 Geometry book. I really like it, and it will definitely cover what is on the SAT/ACT. I do the lesson in the book with my ds, and I have workbooks for the B level problems and a workbook called Problem Solving. He completes both of those books for each lesson. I use some problems from the text here and there, too. The nice thing using it in a tutoring situation is that there are free videos that my students can watch at home. Since we only meet once a week, if they have trouble on a lesson it's a great resource to help them.

    Who's going to tackle Thursday with me?

    Good morning! The usuals (dh and cats) are taken care of as well as 1 cup of coffee. To Do: meals school with ds tutor 1 student final co-op prep for classes bills/checking laundry pack up for co-op
  4. It moved too fast for us, so I switched ds to Visual Link. He's doing it totally on his own and his own pace. He completed half of BTB 1, and when he completes two levels of VL, I will call it done for Spanish 1 & 2. The nice thing is that I'm out of the picture and don't have to learn it.! LOL!

    Who's going to tackle Friday with me?

    The meeting went well. Ds didn't do his math while I was gone, so we will be working on that tomorrow. I picked up pizza after ds' hair cut. Then we played MTG with ds. After that, dh and I watched some stuff on Prime. I just finished up working on a survey for our co-op. I still need to be working on the Econ and physics tests. I'm sleepy, so there's always tomorrow!

    Scout, I like the quadrant idea. I'm going with that today. If I understand it, each quadrant represents a different priority such as date to be done by. If not how do you do it? Right now I have these: Have to do Today, Have to do over weekend, Hope to do over weekend, Have to do before Wednesday of next week.
