Learning with e-Tutor
Last month we
started giving you the goals and objectives for the broad curricular
areas offered by e-Tutor. The e-Tutor program focuses on the
four major areas of Language Arts, Math, Science and Social
Studies. Twenty-three subjects are included in the
This month a parent
commented that the math lesson modules were advanced for his student
(middle/junior high). Lesson modules range from easy to
advanced. Students who find success in the easier lesson modules
dive right into the harder ones and are surprised to learn that they
are quite adept at even the most challenging concept or
As you may recall in your
primary studies, you worked with unknown numbers. Although it
may have been helping you with addition or subtraction, it also was an
introduction to Algebra. So, in the e-Tutor program, primary
students have algebra lesson modules. At the high school level,
math subjects are a precursor to
higher level Algebra and Geometry. In most,
curriculums the subjects are labeled, pre-Algebra, Algebra I,
etc. In the e-Tutor program they are labeled based on where the

Summer signup has started! Can
you believe it? It is hard to believe that another summer is
just around the corner. If your child is in need of a summer
refresher, preparation for another grade level or continuation of
studies, you will want to get on the list. There are a select
number of slots for summer school students. You can enroll at https://www.e-tutor.com/enroll.php.
