I’m sure you have heard your kids complain about how math is useless and they are never going to need it in real life. Who cares what time one train coming from the west and another coming from the east will pass each other? But really, middle and high school students need real world math skills, including lessons on business, finance, savings, taxes, insurance, credit, paychecks, budgeting, etc. We have experienced tutors who can teach business/math life skills to all ages from as young as 3rd grade through 12th. Please inquire for more info and feel free to look at some of the curriculum online.
