Did we have tutor’s back in the 70’s while attending Holy Name? (I sure could’ve used one, I don’t think I ever brought home anything higher than a ‘B’)
Our ten year old daughter attends a session once a week with a local grade school teacher for some Math help. I wasn’t very good in that subject but my wife was excellent; so she is somewhere in the middle. Come to think of it, I wasn’t very good in any subjects except for recess. I excelled in that area.
With regards to Taylor and her 5th grade Arithmetic, nothing to be alarmed about, just figure since the resource is available here in our area, why not utilize it.
I don’t know about you the reader, (if you have kids that is) but when we sit down with Taylor, it’s tough getting through to her with her studies. But take her to see the Math tutor at the library, miracles happen! She responds so well.
During my spare time I train basketball players to supplement my income (similar to a personal trainer at the 5th avenue gym). I charge a small fee and work with the player on their skills. I guess it works because I get a lot of calls from parents because of the work I do.
Once again I ask, did we have tutors available? If we did, who were they? Where did the sessions take place? What did they charge? Because I know we didn’t have basketball trainers available; our training was 6-8 hours in the schoolyard.
