I found a new tutor for the girls and they absolutely love her!!! The story is the following: given that we are not moving to China and need to stay put in Manila for upcoming months including home schooling 100% of the time if needed. I’ve been avidly looking for tutor for the girls, not just to entertain them, but also to learn some eventually, especially with Lizzy. After months of “workbook” Lizzy still cannot master 1-20 which left me and husband very frustrated. So I asked around who can recommend a tutor good with kids. And I found one. We tried one class with Sofia for spanish (yes! this young girl lived in Chile so she’s fluent in Spanish), and one class with Lizzy (for numbers).
I didn’t have any worry with Sofia because she’s very adaptable and friendly to new people/setting, so the class went very well and she liked it. Yesterday Lizzy had her first class. At first she didn’t even want to have it and was tearing to me to sit with her. I was in a call so couldn’t but asked Sofia to be on her side during the class. Husband and I were anxious and frequently checked on her. At first, she was totally silence and reluctant to do what the teacher asked her. Sofia was encouraging her. But by the last 10 min of the class, she was alone with the iPad, listening and interacting with the teacher. When it ended, she said she wanted to have another class tomorrow! 😀 Such a relief!!!
So, we will have 3 class of 1 hour for Lizzy per week and 2 classes for Sofia. 🙂 I feel an accomplished mom already to be helping with their learning, but the truth is that I need some focus time to work! hahaha
Busy day at work, 4 calls with short break in between but I still made a good lunch. Bibimbap spread
Gratitude: I am really glad that the new teacher is working well with the girls. Sofia gets to learn spanish in a structured way while Lizzy learned to have fun learning.
