Knowledge helps you make a living. Wisdom helps you make a life.
Dear Y3K Tutor In Your Home Families,
As the world and our country come together to manage through the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, We hope that you and your loved ones are healthy and safe.
In recent weeks, we have all needed to take extreme steps for the health and well-being of our shared communities. Our hearts are with those diagnosed with the virus, and our deepest gratitude goes out to the heroes of this moment, including the doctors, nurses, health care professionals and everyone on the front line across the country who are displaying incredible bravery to support the greater good. They set an inspiring example for all of us.
At Y3K Tutor In Your Home we remain committed to the national efforts in slowing the spread of the virus. We have decided to extend our temporary in-home closures, until further notice, for the health and safety of our tutors and students. While our in-home tutoring is suspended, we continue to serve the many of families who we tutor through Zoom, FaceTime, Skype and WhatsApp, 8:00 AM – 11:00 PM seven days a week, directly in your home.
We are closely monitoring the situation and will reopen in your home as soon as it is safe to do so, based on the guidance of experts, including the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Y3K Tutor In Your Home looks forward to you welcoming us back into your house when deemed safe to do so. We will continue to provide updates, including news of resuming in-home schedules, at Y3KTutorInYourHome.com/blog.
We want to personally thank all of our students for their willingness to adapt to the changing world around them, while preventing an educational slide during their time off from in-person learning. Also we want to thank all of our tutors that have shown incredible agility and dedication to our students.
It is fair to say that these past weeks have been among the most daunting and extraordinary that we have experienced in our lifetime. We are being tested in ways far beyond what we could have ever imagined, and yet we are also coming together with renewed purpose. All of us are finding greater strength and resilience from each other. Thank you for being a loyal Y3K Tutor In Your Home customer. At Y3K Tutor In Your Home, serving your family is our highest purpose. We look forward to seeing you back in person soon.
Please be safe and take care of yourself and your family.

Never give up until you reach the finish line.
One who is shipwrecked for the second time cannot lay the blame on the ocean. Use mistakes as an opportunity to learn and grow from them.
Sometimes students struggle with homework because of learning difficulties, not because they don’t want to do the work. If you suspect this, act at once. Some options include contacting the teacher, calling the special education department and requesting a neuropsychological evaluation, you the parent working with your student at home, or calling a Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutor to catch them up and move them forward.
PARENTS AGREE: Y3K TUTOR IN YOUR HOME CHANGES LIVES
Y3K Tutor In Your Home has been working with our 7-year-old son who was diagnosed with executive function. After only a few sessions I could not believe the difference in his writing and math. I am amazed that in such a short period of time we went from not being able to read anything our son wrote, to having him write complete legible sentences. My son’s tutor has a natural ability for making children feel comfortable. He also shows them that it is OK to make mistakes. I talked to many different people who provided tutoring services and found that their process was very specific and not necessarily tailored to the child and their way of learning. After talking to Jerry I knew our search was over. Jerry is amazing and cares very much for the kids he works with. I cannot thank him enough for his hard work, dedication, advice and most of all the hope that he has given me for my son and his future.

Excellence is the difference between what I do and what I am capable of.
Silence is the great teacher, and to learn its lessons you must pay attention to it.
The human brain is about 60% fat. That means when your kids eat healthy fats, it can support brain function. Some foods with good amounts of healthy fats include avocado, nuts and seeds. Oils such as extra-virgin olive oil and coconut oil are also beneficial.
Carbohydrates are important eating for academic success. Some examples of healthy complex carbohydrates to add to your child’s diet are brown rice, quinoa and oats. These types of carbohydrates elevate levels of serotonin in the brain, which has a calming effect.
