I'm a private tutor, and Lesson Planet helps me gather materials quickly on specific topics in different grade levels that I can adapt for one-on-one tutoring. Some of my students are ADHD, and I really appreciate it when I find lessons on the same concept taught in different ways. If one way doesn't quite work, very often I find another that works much better.
