Educator.com Giveaway!!!



With school starting soon stress may be on the rise. For me, my stress level would go up as soon as I collected all my books for each class. They need to start making larger backpacks for all the books they throw on you. Besides all the books I had to carry, I had an even bigger challenge. I tend to only use my right side of the brain. Sometimes I even wonder if I have another half. I am all about the arts and easily fly through these courses no problem. That is why I chose Computer Animation as my major in college. No matter what the degree though, I still had my general courses which included Math and Science. I was always having to turn for help on these courses. Sometimes finding someone who had the ability to teach me and not just understand the information for themselves was nearly impossible. This is why I am excited to share with you a new option.

Educator.com has brought together the best teachers in the country and their lectures to help you succeed in your schooling. All of Educator.com educators are current college professors with great ratings. Both high school and university topics in mathematics, science and computer programming are available. To save you time from watching a whole lecture when you are only looking for a specific part, you can simply search for the topic and jump straight to the part in the video which contains the information you are needing. To help those who are more visual like myself, Educator.com also shows you graphical explanations and provides detailed notes that highlight important points you must know. With several moms and dads going back to school these days, this can be a wonderful resource to help get you through. If you aren't going back to school anytime soon, but have a student who is approaching the subjects that you know nothing about, Educator.com could be the help your looking for.

Now for the best news, Educator.com is only $20 a month for unlimited access to 9 subjects. Try finding a tutor that cheap and one who also contains top knowledge on so many subjects.

This would be great for my teenage daughter to get help in math and biology. I never was too good in those subjects, so this would give her the help she needs.

Educator.com with its Math Magic video series could benefit my child because it addresses some of the common student pitfalls and items found again and again as exam topics. I love the way it says the instructor goes through the type of problem, the logic behind the solution, and how they can adapt to
questions they will have in the future. My daughter has difficulty understanding the "why" behind many mathematical problems and it sounds like this program would be the perfect solution to that problem. I had never hear of this program before, but win or not, I will most likely purchase a month's subscription so that I can see if it will help her as much as I think that it can. Thank you for introducing it to me.

You asked for my worse subject in school and it was most definitely MATH. I wish there were something back then, like Educator.com, for me to use because I always needed to be told the why behind the way the teacher presented and solved a problem. When I couldn't be given the why, I could not understand how the answer was what it was. I feel like this is where my daughter gets her weakness in having to be shown instead of merely being told.

This entry is for the 3 free months of www.educator.com. My daughter is a visual learner. So anything visually stimulating, and presented in an interesting manner will keep her attention. And she's starting to study for the ACT as well. That will make this site even more valuable.

it would help my son in so many ways. he loves to be on the computer, even if it's for learning. so that would help encourage him

lsfish said...

It would benefit both me and my daughter because we are terrible at math. I would love to learn how to do algebra.

lsfish said...

worst subject ins school was math, I definitely need a tutor for that

pierce said...

Educator.com can benefit the kids because it's another easy access to educational resources and every bit helps.

What a neat give a way. My worst subject in school currently is Math. I only have 5 classes left so this would be a huge help for me!!

Lolita said...

Any of these would be a God-send for my homeschooled teens! But especially Algebra II.

Thank you!

Lolita said...

My worst subject in school was definitely Algebra and Geometry. The concepts were totally foreign to me, hence the reason why I could sure use Educator.com for my homeschooled teens!

Math for my daughter is very hard! It was hard for me too! Guess what I grew up to be an accountant because I had great tutors for math. tmongaraz@yahoo.com

This would be great for us. My son attends an online charter school, and I'm his daily "learning coach". We get a lot of support from the staff at his school, but sometimes when you're struggling it helps to have a little extra help, and it never hurts to hear it from someone else's angle.

I also forgot to mention that my worst subject, by far, is any form of advanced math. I've always done well grade wise in any class I've taken, but retaining it has never been a strength. Any extra help to make it "click" would be wonderful.

Worst subject is Math! I could really use this for school this coming semester!

Educator.com would help my daughter in the areas of her studies she is having problems in. It could reinforce concepts she doesn't understand. She is thinking about college. It could help her in this area too. garrettsambo@aol.com

Educator.com can benefit me by giving the tools to learn various subjects from the convenience of my home.
