I was wondering if there is a 'retired' preschool or kindergarden teacher out there who would like to make a little extra money 'tutoring' my daughter - she just turned 3 and can recognize her alphabet via flashcards (minus 4 of the letters), count to 10 in 3 languages (when she wants to :)) and is a pretty bright girl. She is energitic and we have gone through two Chinese language tutors b/c they apparently don't realize 3yr olds need some 'time outs' from a learning session - anyhow, she likes to play games and we play a lot of alphabet games at home but I'm looking for someone to take it a step up, maybe teaching the phonics or sounds of the letters? Something fun, yet educational - I am not expecting miracles but I think she would really benefit from this. If this sounds like you let me know your hourly rate and where you are located, as well as if you prefer to come to me or her to come to you - I would like this to be two days a week for an hour or so. Thanks for your time! Please don't reply if you're going to 'bash' me on trying to push my daughter too hard. She thinks learning is fun & after having 5 other children besides her and doing daycare/foster care for over 6 years I recognize she is 'different' than any of the other children and I want to give her the opportunity to excel. And please don't flag, I tried to post on other boards with no response and figure there are going to be more children oriented people on here than other boards. Thank you!
