How can you go about finding the right kind of educational experience for your son or daughter? How do you decide whether to consider a Montessori school? When choosing a school for your child, it’s important to keep your child’s temperament and learning style in mind.

Of course, anyone can write a sentence starting with a capital letter and ending in a period, but if you were given a sentence full of punctuation like colons and semi-colons, would you know if they were in the right place? And do you know how to properly open and close quotation marks?

One of the most difficult choices for a young person to make is choosing a college major. The major you choose will largely affect how you spend the rest of your life, not to mention the classes you take, the people you meet and the internships and scholarships you can apply for.
While choosing a major can be difficult, it doesn’t have to be complicated. You likely already know things you are interested in doing. Here are a few tips to help you choose the area of study that’s right for you.
Make a list: Write a list of jobs that you are interested in doing. Write down hobbies you enjoy doing and classes you enjoy. When you are reviewing your options, this will help.
Order a course guide: Most universities will send you a catalog for free or a minimal fee that lists all of the majors and course requirements. This tool is priceless when it comes to helping you choose a major. Most course catalogs offer insight into the types of jobs you can obtain with your degree and suggested schedules for your major.
