I’ve been a volunteer elementary school tutor in math in MA for a number of years, but now I’m moving down to Sun City Center this summer. I’d like to find and/or create a volunteer math tutoring program for the 3 local elementary schools, so if anyone can tell me if such a program already exists in SCC or Ruskin or other local community I’d appreciate it.
In the meanwhile, my preferred grade levels are 4th and 5th grades, and I’ve found that playing fun math-related games can be extremely helpful. Maybe not directly to test anxiety but definitely a confidence booster in general. Aside from the issue of finding a school to volunteer in, I’d be happy to share one or two game ideas that you can play with your child over the summer or during the school year. FYI the particular game I have in mind is targeted to 4th and/or 5th graders – sorry about younger kids, but I’ll try to seek out math games for younger kids before I move down in August (2018),
