Richard  K. ...I have a degree in Elementary Education from West Chester University, and I have been working mostly with homeschoolers, most of whom were in that age range, since about 1980. I have had some tutoring jobs in which I was hired to teach all the subjects, and lived with the family a few days a week. I've also taught those ages in some small, parent-run schools.

John R. ...Geometry is a very visual subject, so I like to use hands-on activities to help students understand the concepts. Many students are intimidated by all of the new vocabulary that geometry presents. But I have found that if they are provided with clear, straightforward definitions and examples of the terms, they have no problem handling the concepts.

Patricia L. We use math every day, even when it doesn't seem like it. I like to help learners figure out applications of the math they want to master - and then approach it as a puzzle they might face in daily living. I have taught math in junior high, high school and college, as well as on the job in a wide range of fields.

June L. ...I usually go through plenty of practice sentences for my students to point out any errors they see. Instead of just telling them the right answer, I ask my students to explain why the sentence is correct. I also ask them to look for patterns in the writing, such as parallel sentence structure.
