I have intermittently tried to learn Spanish for years, and now I am taking it more seriously again. My question now is, how can I advance myself to the next level, without any consistent access to native speakers? Ideally I would like to do this for free, but low cost is also okay. [more inside]
I have a student in a one-on-one situation who takes a while to get new math concepts. We can go for an hour without any real improvement. She appears frustrated, though, when probed, she'll just make a joke and not discuss it directly. How can I balance investing myself in her progress while only displaying encouragement and positive feedback?
So the kid next door is curious, restless, and smart as hell. He knows we have a shit ton of books, so he just asked me if he could borrow one for his weekly reading assignment. We have nothing for kids on hand, but I would really love to set him up with a few great things from the library or bookstore. Can you help me hook this kid on reading? He says he likes sports, adventure, and mystery. Bonus points for African-American content/protagonists/heroes. Thanks, everybody!
I'm looking for advice on gap year experiences (between HS and college) [more inside]
Is there a free or cheap program which displays sequences of random numbers and then, their sum? Screen-filling numbers, like Sesame Street. One, two, three and even four digits, positive and negative. Repeatable sequences and user-controlled speed a plus.
The "how to pay for grad school" articles that pop up in a Google search are WOEFULLY LACKING in specifics. I'm looking for actual, specific tales of how real people out there in the world financed their Masters degrees. Feel free to get brutally honest. [more inside]
I had an interaction with my lab partner that I thought was weird today, but I'm having trouble parsing exactly how weird it was (if at all!) and if I should do anything about it. [more inside]
Does anyone know or have experience using the GI Bill? Especially regarding payment obligations to the university? Do I ever have to pay up front? [more inside]
I am in search of recorded classroom lectures available online - preferably high school or middle school level (though college is okay if it's not crazy difficult like Nuclear Physics or Advanced Shakespeare). More details inside, if necessary: [more inside]
I have a great idea for a type of reference book. I'd love to make it a reality as I think it could really be useful to a lot of people. I only have the idea though. What do I do now?
At my job, we use a reporting tool that returns quantitative results (from a feedback form) using circles—an empty or “lighter” circle, which is actually a circle with a small black dot in the center indicates a lower value, while a darker circle (partially filled with a large black dot or entirely filled) represents a higher value. What is this graph called? [more inside]
I'd like to buy a university-style textbook (or another general survey book) on U.S. history written in the Russian language. Basically, I'm looking for the book that a Russian university would use for it's equivalent to History of the United States 101. Thanks! [more inside]
I have a relatively new baby (almost ten weeks old) and she is amazing! I didn't think a baby would be this much fun! I'm looking for very detailed (ideally week by week) information on how she is developing and what games I can play with her that we will both find enjoyable ("games" defined very broadly e.g. "watching her eyes track a moving object" and "trying to grasp something with her tiny paw" both count as games for these purposes).

I'm a lone rhino in an online Communications survey course. The prof wants us to discuss conversations that we have. In short, I converse with no one. Whaddo I do? [more inside]
I"m tutoring a 12 year old girl in math and she displays an idiosyncratic learning disability / learning style. (Specific issue was in learning to calculate the area of a rectangle, an example was used of a rectangle with area of 48 and she didn't understand why all rectangles don't have areas of 48.) Could someone offer suggestions for this specific student, or, more generally, a resource where I might be likely to find others who might have run across similar students?
I took the first half of organic chemistry and really struggled through synthesis. I have to take the second half this spring and I am really scared. Do you have any tricks/magical methods to help me beat it into my head? [more inside]
Hi everyone. Like the title suggests, I need some help figuring out an education/career plan for myself before I return to school next year (details inside). [more inside]
I'm a beginning Spanish learner. I do one in-person class (1.5 hours) and one conversation hour (1.0 hour) per week. I tend to be a book / pen and paper learner. I would like to add an exercise / homework book, ideally something I can fill out while on public transit, to practice conjugations and the like. Suggestions? I will also ask my Spanish teacher.
Hi everyone, This question is a shot in the dark, but I'm trying to find a way to purchase a hard copy or PDF of the Saifi Institute's Urban Arabic books 4 & 5. This would be easy if I was in Lebanon, but I'm in the US. [more inside]
