  Research shows that nearly all children will experience some decline in their reading and mathematical abilities over summer break, simply due to a lack of practice. But, if we can connect children with the right resources, many of them can avoid this backslide and continue improving their reading and mathematical skills. 

That’s where the free “Find a Book” and Math@Home® utilities can help. They are the perfect additions to your summer plans. You can use these free web utilities to keep any child engaged in targeted reading and mathematical activities long after the final bell of the school year rings.


                      helps children practice specific mathematical skills and concepts at the right difficulty level. In just a few simple steps, you can build a customized list of materials and activities that match a child’s unique ability level and learning goals. To get started, visit http://mah.quantiles.com/

 “Find a Book”

                                            allows children to build their own reading lists or supplement a booklist from their school district or public library. Plus, with built-in links to WorldCat and Barnes & Noble.com, you can check a book’s availability at your local public library or buy it directly online. For more information on using Lexile® measures to support summer reading and to create custom booklists with "Find a Book," visit www.Lexile.com .

This 145-page book is about math tutoring. It is designed to help math tutors and tutees get better at their respective and mutual tasks.
 just look for Becoming a Better Math Tutor.

Tutoring is a powerful aid to learning. Much of the power comes from the interaction between tutor and tutee. This interaction allows the tutor to adjust the content and nature of the instruction to specifically meet the needs of the tutee. It allows ongoing active participation of the tutee.

The intended audiences for this book include volunteer and paid tutors, preservice and inservice teachers, parents and other child caregivers, students who help other students (peer tutors), and developers of tutorial software and other materials.

The book includes two appendices. The first is for tutees, and it has a 6th grade readability level. The other is for parents, and it provides an overview of tutoring and how they can help their children who are being tutored.

An extensive References section contains links to additional resources.

Please feel free to distribute copies of the book-or, information such as given above-to others that you think will benefit by reading the book. Bob and I would be happy to see hundreds of thousands of copies distributed.
