the homeschool math class
Small Classes. No more than 5 students per class.
Hi! My name is Charlotte Cushman. I have been homeschooling our children since September 2000. My experience has taught me that homeschool parents don’t have unlimited time. It is very difficult and time-consuming to personally tutor every lesson for every subject for every student in your homeschool.
YouTube videos and DVDs are great resources, but students who are not self-motivated or who struggle in math need a live teacher. They need someone who teaches the concept and is willing to circle back around and explain it until they understand. They need accountability in the classroom during instruction and someone who is checking for understanding throughout the class. Students do better when they are called on in class and have to listen and interact during a lesson.
That is what I offer.
Twice a week your student will work alongside me in a small class setting as we work through the examples and practice problems of the Saxon text. There will be no more than four other students in their class (class size is limited to five students). Each student will be expected to ask and answer questions as well as participate in class. My goal is that each student will demonstrate an increasing understanding of the material as we work through it together.
For the 2021-2022 school year I am offering Saxon 7/6, Saxon 8/7, Algebra 1/2, Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 group tutoring on the days below:
10:00-11:00 am – Saxon 7/6
11:00-12:10 pm – Saxon Algebra 1/2
1:00 -2:30 pm – Saxon Algebra 2
9:45-10:45 – 8/7 Saxon 8/7
10:45-11:55 – Saxon Algebra 1
The complete class schedule for the year will be updated soon. The 2020-2021 schedule is currently found on each class page.
Before committing to the class, I will be glad to meet with you and your student online to make sure that the online set up is comfortable for you and will meet your needs.
