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.

Y3K TUTOR IN YOUR HOME’S ADHD QUIZ #7: EATING FISH
Q: True or False: Pregnant women who eat lots of fish are more likely to have children with ADHD?
A: True. Initial research suggests that pregnant women who eat lots of fish – especially tuna, swordfish and other fish with high mercury levels are more likely to have children with ADHD. Researchers from the Boston University School of Public Health tracked 788 Massachusetts children between 1993 and 1998. Then they had the children’s mothers keep food diaries while they were pregnant so they could see how much fish the women ate. They took hair samples from them after they gave birth so they could test their mercury levels.
Eight years later, they asked the children’s teachers if the kids exhibited ADHD-like symptoms, such as hyperactivity, impulsiveness and inattentiveness. The researchers concluded that the women who had the most mercury in their hair were 60% more likely to have a child who exhibited ADHD-like behavior.
