Kate Snow of Kate’s Homeschool Math Help is back! And this time, she’s answering listener questions.

Kate – a Harvard grad, full-on smarty and possible math fairy brings her signature mix of calming support and deep math knowledge to this episode. She addresses what to do about math if you’re brand new to homeschooling, how to know if your child really “gets” a math concept and more.

This one is especially good for the math-phobic  – so get cozy and let Kate put your anxious soul at ease.

    Maybe “Nude” is a reference to the poem “The Naked and the Nude” by Robert Graves…you know maybe that Nude license plate belongs to a homeschooler….maybe….

        Hi, Karen!

        I’m taking my foot out of my [incredibly awkward and rambly] mouth for a second. I don’t know if I am more embarrassed that I am such an awkward, stream-of-consciousness podcaster, or that my family has an immature sense of humor, OR if I had never read “The Naked and the Nude” – it’ s a toss-up at this point!

        Please accept my sincerest apology for talking about your license plate on our podcast. I absolutely love that your plate references poetry and that you’re a homeschooler. OF COURSE a homeschooler would have a poetry reference on a license plate. It’s perfect! 

        I would also like to thank you because you prompted an important life lesson over here. I shared this story with my children and told them how insanely embarrassed I am and how one should never assume anything because there is always more to the story. And that even though we all know this, sometimes we mess up… even when we’re in our forties!

        Again, I am SO sorry. I feel like such a dope and I am so glad you ‘schooled’ this homeschooler today! 

        If you forgive my blunder, come say hello. I’d love to awkwardly apologize in person and meet another homeschooler!

        Wishing you a wonderful weekend,
