School districts throughout the United States are dealing with two online schooling problems that have them frustrated. The first problem involves students not completing their work. They either don’t take their online assignments seriously, don’t have the one-on-one support at home to help them, or find independent computer lessons distracting. One fix to this problem some schools have been doing is to consider the March – June 2020 semester to be graded as pass/fail only. That way report cards won’t show a major drop in grades from third term to fourth term. What do you think about this solution?
Check back here for the much larger problem that has school systems scrambling for answers.
Our Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutor has been terrific for my 7th grader with executive function and decoding issues. He met a boy frustrated about school, quickly established a great rapport and turned him into a boy with some confidence that he could meet the demands of 7th grade. It is an ongoing process. Our tutor helps each week with organization of materials and assignments and working on homework where a little more explanation is needed. He has been particularly helpful in helping with writing assignments, getting my son to think through the question, his argument and then really thoroughly explaining and supporting his arguments. Before he was struggling to write 3 paragraphs, and now he is checking to make sure he has articulated every thought clearly. Our tutor’s support each week reinforces the lessons and keeps my son on track and organized. His grades have come up, but most importantly he is confident in himself as a student and is engaging more with teachers during the day.

Anything worth doing can be done.
Our 10-year-old daughters (identified as having executive function issues) have been working with Y3K Tutor In Your Home once a week for about six months and they are doing extremely well in school this year. In just a short time we have seen great strides made. We found Y3K after interviewing many tutors and we went with them because our tutor seemed so passionate about educating kids and helping them to achieve.
Our tutor has a nice way about him and is very gifted in communicating with kids. He highlights the positive in a student’s work and is supportive and encouraging on the areas that need work. He is also receptive to parent input.
I highly recommend Y3K Tutor In Your Home. Having this tutor work with our kids has been terrific.

The Y3K Tutor In Your Home owner has been an amazing tutor for my son. I am so glad we got to know him. Right now he is helping my son with math. I like how he finds multiple ways of teaching something, specifically for how my son will understand. I like that he can cover any subject if he needs to. I love how he includes organization and planning skills during the class. Our tutor can adapt to any child and create a special bond between them. Overall he is an amazing tutor and friend to my child.

My daughter needed some organization and structure to be able to finish her homework on time and be comfortable with the materials. Our Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutor has helped her do that and her Q1 report card shows the positive results. Our tutor is professional, pro-active, responsive and knowledgeable and connects well with my daughter. I can highly recommend him as a tutor.

PARENTS AGREE: Y3K TUTOR IN YOUR HOME CHANGES LIVES
The Y3K Tutor In Your Home owner has worked with my high school student for the past two years, helping with executive function, study skills, organization, time management, and homework coaching. I am so grateful for his ability to act as coach, cheerleader and drill sergeant, often all at once. He enters our home with great energy no matter how late it is or how many students he may already have seen, and is instantly asking my student about last week’s test or homework assignment. He remembers the details of my student’s assignments – often better than the student does! The tutor presses gently but persistently until the results or outcomes are revealed. He has helped our student understand the importance of taking homework seriously and keeping up with it. He has contributed greatly to our student’s ability to track the volume of work and plan ahead for the coming week. This tutor is able to hold our student accountable and encourage the best effort in a way we, the parents, cannot do without a huge fight. We’re really grateful for his work and highly recommend him without reservations.
