Virtual Nerd update

Have I mentioned how glad I am for Virtual Nerd? (It’s a math tutoring website, available by subscription, if you’re just joining us for the first time.)

I showed Eldest the online lessons on circles and circumference today. I can’t tell you how many times we’ve gone over it. There’s something about watching the video lecture that adds distance, takes emotion out of the equation. The instructor is cheerful and positive, her attitude exudes the message You can DO this!

And after watching the video, repeating some of it (funny how the instructor never tires of repeating herself… not like some people around here I might name), clicking on a couple of the links to underlying concepts (multiplying decimal numbers — just to brush up, as it was something she already knows)…

She can.

Disclaimer: I’m an ambassador for the Virtual Nerd site, which means I’ll be periodically telling you about our experience with Virtual Nerd, as well as updates and special deals.
