Schedule your monthly Touch-Base appointment with our fabulous Tutors!

Hurrah! We will finish up Chapter 1 next Friday (the 8th)!

This month we will have our first chapter quizzes!

Chapter quizzes are designed to help you see how well you know the material.

Please keep in mind that if you use resource material during the Chapter Quizzes, you will not know how well you are doing.

The quizzes count as much as a homework, but count less than your Touchbase Sessions!

The fabulous Embedded tutors offer you practice to feel confident of your abilities!
