RECENT STUDENT FEEDBACK:
“Your methods are so clear that my seven year old
son was grasping the trigonometry lessons. I’m
picking up some new things as well.” Gary G.
“Watching your videos is wonderful because, as
you work the problems, you show and explain
every step.” Marilyn D.
“All of the instruction and examples on the
DVDs are very clearly explained and your style
of teaching definitely makes the viewer very
comfortable with the material being presented.”
“I found the lectures very clear, straight to the
point, and the pace was just right for me, who has
not seen any calculus or trig in the past 10 years
and needed to come up to speed fast.” Sophia A.
“You have a serious teaching gift.” Dennis S.
“I tell all my friends who have difficulty in
algebra, calculus, or physics that there is help
available at Math TutorDVD.com. It would be
selfish to keep this information to myself! I have
two words for you, “thank you!” Les J.

Begin in this space working side by
side with your child. As older children
get the hang of it, you can give some directions and dart off for a few minutes,
coming back to check their progress.
Younger kids usually lose focus when
Mom leaves the room. Work in small
chunks of time with very specific areas
of focus, breaking down big jobs into
smaller, manageable parts. Some kids are
inspired by a timer; others get stressed
out by the ticking. If you can make a
game of some aspect of organizing, go
for it. Find what works to motivate your
child and help him stay on task.
Motivation is a complicated thing, and
if I had the magic answer to keep your
children motivated, I’d be thrilled to tell it
to you. You’ll need to study each of your
children. Ask the Lord for wisdom and
insight into what will help each child.
Observe what’s difficult for them. What’s
easy? What are they asking to do?
For my family, the ones who are born
organized just take a bit of praise and
moving around within their space to get
their brains and bodies in gear. One in
particular loves to rearrange furniture—
if I help her move some pieces around,
My less organizationally blessed children
need more inspiration. I’ve seen some
of my children come alive when given
cleaning products. Try giving them a
vacuum or cleaning tool. Even a bottle
of Windex and a rag has been known to
get the juices flowing in some of my chil-
dren. Although we are focusing on orga-
nizing, cleaning can help jump start the
process and will overflow into the rest of
the room. I can’t explain how it works,
but it does.
Some children might be motivated by
the decorating process. Let them create
an art project to adorn the wall or sew a
pillow for the bed. Once children are motivated, the rest comes much more easily.
Getting them to care about their space
is part of the process of taking personal
ownership and responsibility. Pray and
watch and see what gets their gears going.
organized, but it will require daily discip-
line to stay that way. Give yourself and
your kids lots of grace, and stick with it.
Teaching your children to get orga-
nized trains them in so many areas—
from stewardship of their belongings,
to keeping a home, to diligence in their
work, and even time management. It will
be hard work—there’s no escaping that—
but the benefits will bless your family
now and for years to come. Organization
is a lesson worth teaching and a life skill

The Work That’s Never Done
The work of organizing calls for endur-
ance. The daily aspect of organizing re-
quires us to work the system we’ve cre-
ated until habits forge together, creating
character. It takes just a few days to get
