Library.

This was surprisingly helpful.  I was thinking it might have a few ideas worth skimming through, but really I found a lot of good ideas and reminders. 

It doesn't hurt that she is supportive of, and willing to learn from homeschoolers.  Ruben regularly recommends homeschooling resources from the Well Trained Mind to their forums.  She has good reminders and suggestions on how to use technology, how to engage your student, ways to encourage, and engage your children.

The book might be worth reading for her checklists to read through for essays and math homework.

It isn't one I'd own, but I appreciated what she had to say, as tutoring being truly parenting, not just the responsibility of someone else.  Good for re-energizing during the February slump.
