What a great place to connect with others who are helping children (and adults) in many areas of learning. My area of expertise is literacy (children's and family). Feel free to visit my blog for families
which alternates between the "snuggle and cuddle stage" and supporting independent readers. I'd love to have you follow and contribute!
Also, there are some great articles for tutors on one of my favorite reading sites, The Literacy Connection:
Advice for First Time Tutors
A Toolbox of Literacy Terms
plus lots of other tips
You will also find an excellent area on comprehension
(the real reason we read anyway).
