    Answering Forum Math Questions

    Do you think that answering forum questions will not only keep me in tune with math but at the same time teach me how to tutor successfully? Too bad the MHF does not have a GRADES 3 TO 8 forum. What do you say?

    Definitely. Just make sure you know what you are doing. There is no shame in trying to answer a question then deciding to not post it if you find you are getting in trouble. And if you make a mistake someone will point it out. Everyone here has made mistakes. (Just make sure you learn from them!) IMHO once you know the basics then the best way to learn more about a subject is to teach it.

    Now, I'm not going to be overly generous and lose sight of the facts while I am encouraging you. You have shown that you have trouble interpreting what a problem is asking for. Before you post you need to make sure you know what the question is asking. If you show you can't do this I'll have to have a chat with you. But give it a try and see. There's no loss of honor in that.

    And we frequently get the secondary Math students or parents or tutors working at your level.

    I am referring to answering math questions in grades 3 to 8 not high school.
