Math is my worst subject -- always has been.

I had a father who was on me every day to know my stuff by heart. He wouldn't let me count on my fingers, which really sucked. But thanks to his persistence, I can balance a checkbook and I use those math skills nearly every day.

Even if that's all your kids use math for when they get older, you've done them a good service.

When I was a kid I didn't have access to tutoring services like Kumon of Yakima -- but my Zoe does.

Specialized tutoring is getting her the help she needs, and it's working. Listen to her explain how:

Kumon math and reading is our Seize the Deal for this week. For $55 for a month, you can schedule your child for four lessons.
