## Memorize Me’s, Backgrounders, & How2’sHere are all the existing Acumen Tutoring MemorizeMe™, Backgrounder™, and How2™ documents as downloadable PDFs. These are free for anyone to use: teachers, individuals, whomever; in particular, you don't need to be an Acumen Tutoring student, so help yourself. All I require is that you don't remove the Acumen Tutoring logo, web address or copyright notice.
