Once upon a time, I was a homeschool teacher. Each day, my kids and I turned our dining room table into a classroom. That is, if we weren’t traveling that day. Before the school year would begin, my wife and I would research curriculums to teach and how to go about educating our children. We decided it was time to send our kids back to public school and looked at homeschooling drift away in our rearview mirror.
Enter Coronavirus Outbreak.
I never thought I would become a homeschool teacher again, but here I am. The dining room table has once again become a classroom. In between lessons, I try to get a little work done myself. As all parents right now know, this is a challenging time to be a parent.
Brainly is a peer-to-peer app where students can ask their peers questions. Think of Quora, but for schoolwork. If a parent if having trouble answering that tricky math question, the student can click on a math section and ask the question. Someone will answer the question. It’s as easy as that. There are other subjects besides math.
Parents, we have enough going on and we’re stressed out. It’s hard being a teacher on top of everything. See if Brainly is right for your house.
