Math learning is largely a matter of persistence. In his best-selling book Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell quotes research that finds that the common denominator of successful people is a specific number of hours of practice. Through careful planning, you can help your child succeed in math by accomplishing those hours of practice. As a teacher, I know that avoiding over scheduling is key. If your child has no room for down time because of boy scouts, soccer, choir, music lessons and an after-school job, he or she will make room -- during homework and study time!

I have always had some kind of a math tutor because I have never been much good at it. Thanks for the insight though, I am sure with technology and the internet, the resources for students and parents of children with math problems has probably quadrupled.
