Hello fellow tutors and students! This is my first blog post, but I do feel that it is an appropriate one.

That time is precious because a student may remember something from the day to help them on the homework. -Practice like it is a test. If your teacher does not let you use a calculator do not use it on the homework! If you cannot use your cell phone in class; do not play with it while... read more
