*Emme is 17 and mostly an independent learner at this point. In the evenings and on the weekends I go over all of her work with her, answer any questions she may have, and fill in where things may have been lacking. During the weekends we do more in-depth learning together. From kindergarten until 7th grade I was able to be at home with her*
