Advice to my younger self- the student

IF I could go back in time and give my younger self some advice on how to be a better student, be more successful in school, life, etc, I would definitely tell myself that being involved in everything comes at a cost. It is better to find a few things that you like to do, do them well and often, than feeling stressed because there is so much on your plate at one time. Being a 'Jack of all Trades'... read more

Dad told me, anybody who can breathe can teach! He must have had poor teachers!

You don't need a teaching degree to effectively teach! I'm not knocking certified teachers. I learned teaching while working as a substitute teacher and as a broadcast-media sales representative. As a mother, I had to learn to help with homework! I'm not a baby-boomer! We did things the hard way (before dishwashers!). And we were achievers! Now I can pass those good habits on to my... read more

Tutoring my fiancee in Chemistry

My fiancee was a year behind me in college at the same school. She had problems in Math and any application of it: seeing numbers on the page scared her. So her first and only failing grade was in first semester Chemistry. Unfortunately for her, she was required to take two semesters of general Chemistry for her BSN Nursing Major. Summer school time came around. As I happened to have... read more

Summer of NO Brain Drain

They say that millions of American children will lose about 25% of their reading skills and approximately 2.6 months of math computation skills this summer (according to the U.S. Department of Education and the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management).

Teaching Students Different Skills

I taught English to Spanish speaking students in Puerto Rico. It was very challenging. I sang and played games with the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th graders. The students who where interested in learning did well and later on the could go to a private school where the classes were all in English, since the main language in Puerto Rico is Spanish. For 12 years I taught family... read more
