Tutoring the 3-Rs and developing other "literacies"

This site is about literacy--basic reading and writing and numeracy, and other "literacies:" celestial, geographic, economic, biological, nutritional, etc. The site is best viewed on the Google Chrome browser.

I am a retired resident of San Francisco with a long-time interest in child and adult literacy. I am offering my free program on the Web to help parents and tutors teach children to read, write, spell, and reckon. I have also included a program on English grammar and composition for good measure. In addition I have Web pages reflecting my interest in other subjects in which I want to be "literate."

If you have an interest in any these subjects, I invite you to check them out:
