Course Description

In this course you will learn the common characteristics of math learning difficulties, different learning styles and different styles of instruction and how they may be impacting your kids learning.

You will then examine different teaching strategies you can use at home that targets your child's style of learning.

You will then study some 'Life Style Habits' that we are all guilty of but seriously affect anyone's ability to learn effectively.

Once you establish what your child is 'missing', it's time to know exactly what it is they are meant to know.

I have a 'Road Map' of every skill learned between Kindergarten and 6th Grade outlined.
