What help can I get when I'm having problems teaching my child at home?

**A weekly study group with an experienced, fully credentialed math teacher.**This study group can be very helpful; make sure you bring your child every week. The teacher will try to cover a large part of the main concepts and new procedures in the weekly work...maybe 60% to 80% of it.

**Three or four weekly drop-in open math-help times with the teacher**(see the Math-Help Times link in the left menu). These times are not for instructing a section from scratch, but for helping children with any particular things they aren't able to learn at home.**Often a five--minute explanation or example from the teacher completely clears something up for a student, so please take advantage of these times.**No, a student cannot come every time and do their work in the room during that time...they really are supposed to be doing the work mostly at home.

**The textbook solutions.**You are expected to use the step-by-step solutions to help your child understand the steps and procedures to correctly do the problems in the textbook.

**If these things aren't enough, then:**

**Resources: there are GREAT internet resources available.**You could teach much of the course with just the videos that come with the textbook (and are available online). There are also numerous other really good internet math websites.**Some of them are linked to this website; go to Useful Math Links.**Also, do an internet search on a math topic, and you will find many useful websites, maybe better than the ones collected in the Useful Math Links.

**Tutors**. You can find tutors through friends, college students you might now, and nearby community colleges. Also, check this link from San Diego State University:**private tutors**.
