    Default by any available and possible ways?

    Hi
    Could you kindly tell me what phrase,idiom or adverb can we used instead of the underlined part?
    She used to try to make us understood by any possible ways.

    Thanks a million.
    Being a non-native teacher, I'm so thrilled being in such a superb forum.

    Regarding the underlined part, is there an idiom?
