I used to tutor for Kumon ages ago. I would recommend it for students that just need a bit of extra repetition (the whole program is pretty much just repetition). I don't think it is the right approach for a child that is seriously behind because it doesn't offer much one on one time with a tutor.
I recently read about a new program for math called JUMP that is getting some attention: http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/04/18/a-better-way-to-tea.... Your child's resource department at school might even offer it.
Hi Heidi - if you are having issues I am Gr 6 teacher in Riverdale with experience tutoring middle to high school students and could give help.
What's the best way to get in touch with you?
