When it comes to getting educational help for our kids, it can be difficult to know which resources will best
serve their current academic needs and challenges. Sometimes, we may want to have extra materials for enrichment,
enhancement or re-teaching.
The short list below will help you jump start your search for educational resources. It’s by no means
exhaustive — surely, you could probably add many books to the list. I found that many of these resources
came in handy as I taught my own kids, ran the school in Nazareth and tutored when I returned to the US.
If you have books, materials and websites that you would like to have us add to the list here, then send me an
email and we’ll include them when we update our resource pages.
