I got an email from Stan over at Master Math and he asked me to post this ad. It’s not free, but a buy-one-get-one free offer for his math tutoring. I’ll post the ad below. Normally I don’t post such things, but I’ve been emailing with Stan and he’s a good guy and I want to encourage him to keep his site free, so I hope he gets some money from tutoring.
TWO-FOR-ONE TUTORING SALE
www.MasterMath.info offers a free Middle School Math curriculum, with over 100 sequential lessons on the concepts needed to prepare a student for high school math. Each lesson includes a fun, 10 – 15 minute video lesson covering that lesson’s concepts, and allowing the student to “You Try It”. The video lessons are accompanied by a Worksheet to print and practice the concepts taught in the lesson, plus a self-grading on-line quiz, which show how to correctly do any problem the student misses on the quiz. All this material is free!
MasterMath also offers you a way to take your student to the next level. Adding some private tutoring to the free lessons will allow me to either remediate, if the student hasn’t mastered the concepts, or push the student further, if she “gets it”. I personally conduct all of the tutoring sessions.
These one hour lessons are conducted over GoToMeeting, a safe, secure virtual meeting website. The student sees me and my computer screen, hears me, and can solve problems I put on my screen. I can hear the student, and see his computer screen. All you need is an internet connection, and a microphone on your computer (or a telephone). It’s a Virtual Classroom experience!
The normal price for tutoring is $35 for one session, $105 for 4 sessions, or $175 for 8 sessions. BUT, for any sessions purchased before October 12, 2011, I’ll double your credits! Purchase a lesson for $35, I’ll give you two lessons. Purchase 8 lessons for $175, I’ll give you 16 lessons! That’s less than $11 per hour!
You can use these lessons whenever you need them. There is no need to schedule them all at once. Just schedule a lesson whenever you think it would be helpful.
At the risk of sounding like I’m selling cars, let me throw out one more incentive. Purchase lessons between now and October 6th, and I’ll throw in free Quarterly Exams for the rest of this year. After a student has completed a quarter, I’ll send you a test that will assess the student’s comprehension of the concepts covered during that quarter. Return the Quarterly Exam to me, I’ll grade it, and return it to you with comments on what needs to be worked on further.
Help your student get the most out of MasterMath. Add some one-on-one tutoring sessions. Visit MasterMath – Schedule A Session to take your student’s math education to the next level.
When I was looking up today’s Homeschool Freebie of the Day, I found Dale Carnegie’s book by the same name. How’s this for a quote: “Public speaking is public utterance, public issuance, of the man himself; therefore the first thing both in time and in importance is that the man should be and think and feel things that are worthy of being given forth.” Speaking of which, today’s resource seems to be just for right now, so go get it :)
Currclick’s freebie is Halloween in Spanish. We don’t do halloween and we’re not learning Spanish so this one’s definitely not for our family.
My husband’s Language and Culture Club‘s next meeting is next Tuesday, the 11th. The club this time will be on the Roma (better known as the Gypsies). We have lived in a Roma village and my husband speaks their language fluently. So, this one is fun and personal for us. We love the Roma!
Think that’s all I got. I’m working every day on writing curriculum for my children and yours. I hope some of you will be able to use it. I am trying to add something fun in each week. I have been finding way to go ecards and such to sneak into their school. I think this week I’m going to add in this as a fun break.
