English is not my native language, so when it comes to helping my girls with it for their school work, I am often feel lost. I can read and write it fairly well, but when it comes to discussing terms and sentence structure and the difference between verbs and adverbs, I can be more confusing to my girls than helpful. This is one reason why I am happy I found the educator.com.
I took a look at the sample lesson on nouns and really found it enlightening. I mean, most of us don’t think of the term for the words we are using where it be a pro-noun or a proper noun, we just write them or use them in our everyday activities.
Above is a screen shot of the lesson that was available on the site. I like the way the educator show what she is talking about. I found this style of teaching very helpful to me. I at times struggle with gender specific nouns because in my native language they are not really present. My husband will often chuckle when he hears me refer to a “him” as a “her” and he and my youngest daughter will correct me.
English grammar lessons are not only beneficial for me, they are beneficial for both my girls. My youngest daughter has been in English speaking schools from the start, my eldest daughter, started with my native language and has been catching up. These lessons are invaluable to us as our mastery of the English language improves.
Lessons available on educator.com are not limited to English. I found the lessons in basic mathematics very valuable when it come so to aiding my eldest daughter with her math homework. It helps us both to see a professional at the educator present the same concepts she is currently studying.
The math lesson I viewed was on Basic Math where the educator discussed Expressions and Variables. I wish I would have known of educator.com before when my eldest daughter was struggling with her math. I spent money on tutoring when I could have saved money by joining educator.com. I know as she progresses, that educator.com will be a valuable asset to me and both of my daughters.
I pulled the above screen capture form the educator.com review website. The list of subjects available is quite impressive. My nieces can take advantage of the Computer Science subjects since that is her college major. My eldest daughter will find the biology, physics, math and English courses valuable as she continues her high school education. As for me, well there is a lesson on blogging and the English lessons have already proven to be of value.
I really enjoy learning and the way that the lessons are presented on educator.com really hits a note with me. The lessons are easy for me and my daughter to understand. I do not get frustrated with my daughter when I try to present a concept to her because we can both see it right on the computer screen.
