Reach for the high apples first. You can get the low ones any time.
Putting a laptop on a table or desk when doing a Zoom meeting can cause a student’s neck to protrude forward and downward to see the screen. The goal is to not slouch to look at the screen. The easy solution is to put some boxes on the table or desk and then put the laptop on the boxes. Align the screen so that your child’s eyes are looking straight at the upper 1/3 of the screen.
Does your student do their laptop schoolwork while sitting on a sofa? Next time we will take a closer look at how safe that position is for the neck and back.
There two simple ways you can keep your students pain-free and in the right position while they are learning remotely using their laptops. The first method of maintaining proper screen height so your child will not strain their neck can be found in box stores and online. Proper back and neck ergonomics can be achieved with a laptop stand. A laptop stand will raise the screen to eye level so your child won’t need to slouch their neck. You can easily buy one wherever you find computer accessories.
Did you know that you could also make your own laptop stand at home using common household items, to keep your kids safe and pain-free? Look for our next post on the second method as we show you the how to make one easily while saving money.
A good beginning is half the task.
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.

If you focus on whether you will run out of toilet paper in 30 days or not, you miss out on the joy of having enough for today. Stores may have enough by then. A treatment or cure for coronavirus could be discovered tomorrow. When London, England residents in 1940 woke up on day 58 after 57 straight nights of Nazi blitzkrieg, there was no more bombing. Enjoy each moment you have and don’t waste your energy on fears about the future.
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.

Imagination can be just as important and sometimes even more important than knowledge.
Never give up until you reach the finish line.
