Math Adventures for Teenshomeschool

Homeschooled teens meet weekly in my home to explore math concepts through project-based, creative, and logical explorations. Half the session is then devoted to individual progress at the student’s pace, using a Singapore Math-based approach. For 2015-2016, a few spots are still open in this class. Sign up or get more information by contacting me.

Private or group/family tutoring is available through this link. You may also contact me if you are interested in starting a group in your area. I would love to hear from you!

Summer math programs will be listed on the sister site, Singapore Math New York.

What is inside your brain just waiting to be set free? Ninjas? Dragons? Wizards? Talking trees? Monsters? Princes and princesses? Students learning in an upside-down school? Friendships? Aliens? Skateboarding superheroes?

Well, now is your chance to find out! Join a group of enthusiastic young writers, some of whom are already published, as we venture into the territory of story writing together. We will meet together in real places and, when we can’t do that, in a virtual classroom hosted by National Novel Writing Month’s Young Writers Program.

We will be meeting in October for prewriting activities that are really fun (and aligned to curriculum standards), then throughout November to write like crazy. Benefits will include:

  • Personal and collective progress charts
  • Making new friends
  • A button (pin) for each participant when we reach our word count goal
  • The Dare Machine
  • Word wars and word sprints
  • Pep talks to keep us going
  • A party at the end to celebrate “Thank goodness it’s over!”
  • Certificates of completion
  • Guidance for editing and self-publishing our work

Remember, the story doesn’t have to be good, and you don’t have to worry about spelling or grammar until later. It’s all about the fun of writing. Let’s have a blast!

Read more about how the program works at this blog post. And listen to interviews with young NaNoWriMo participants here.
