I like to try to first find out how your child learns. Are they either hands on or are they better with just reading instructions and following them. It does take some time to really find out. Even more so for younger children. I am not an expert but it is a definate passion of mine. I homeschooled my younger brother and sister for a little over a year and enjoyed it very much. I have also work with many younger kids, all being family members though, helping with there homework, and helping even younger ones with learning letters and math. I assure you I love to help children learn and do everything that i possibly can to help them understand, because I know that, that is a main problem.
