Zoie Hoffman from Hoffman Tutoring Group joins the podcast today to talk about goal setting and tips for helping kids with homework without the chaos. If we’ve learned one thing this year it’s that having kids home for virtual school is a challenge. Zoie gives us some tangible ways we can help our kids have a positive experience with homework.
Zoie is also the mother of 7 month old twins so she shares a little bit about what it was like to become a first time Mom to TWO babies at once in the middle of a pandemic.
