So many people are being effected in so many ways with the cut backs in our educational system. They have to stop offering late buses in the county that we live in and not having the late bus really has made a tremendous impact on our lives and will continue to do so I’m afraid for a long time to come.
Our 13 year old has 4 more years to go and then we are done with public school and move on to college issues. And right now we are having math problems to deal with and I’m sad to say that I can’t be of much help when it comes to math answers.
The middle school that she attends is a good 30 minute drive and with out the late bus it hasn’t been as convenient for her to stay after school to receive additional help from her teachers. The numbers are way down for the kids that used to stay after and catch the late bus. And finding a decent tutor can become a challenge and expensive as well. So I have to say that I am grateful for what the Internet can bring to us in ways of online tutoring. She has been utilizing this online math tutoring site at Tutornext dot com, for the last few months, since school started, and we have seen a change in her grades from last year, and a change in her attitude, when it comes to math issues and homework.
I’m sure she will being using Tutornext dot com in her up and coming high school years and possibly even turn to it during her college years. She wants to be a Marine Biologist and will taking plenty classes that she will be needing help with and they offer all the classes that she will be most likely needing help in. Wish I could be of more help to her, but at least there are other options out there for her that I never had when I was in school desperately looking for help.
