"I find this reading/phonics resource absolutely helpful if you have a child starting out who gets easily distracted by visuals or tries to guess the words from pictures. It's laid out simply, with scripted cues for parents and child, with excellent s.."

"I use this to teach Biology and Chemistry, as well as upper-level math, and I can't stand it. I love that it is taught from a Christian perspective. However, the material is so anti-secular that some of it is wrong. My degree is in science, I know bi.."
"The curriculum is to the point where they give you exess work for Jo reason. For example, every week in earth science (a freshmen class), the teacher gives you a lab that takes up to 5 hours to figure out. The way it is written is poor, and there is .."
Christian Light Review by Kathryn Calhoun
"Neighbors in Latin America Grade 6: I was so disappointed when I read Chapter 15 about Cuba. My parents are Cuban and along with many other relatives, they left Cuba after Fidel Castro took over. None of my relatives were wealthy. My dad’s uncle o.."
Alpha Omega Academy Review by Robin Liberatore
"We chose Alpha Omega Academy after taking my daughter out of public school. She worked at a faster pace than her classmates and bullying was a huge problem. AOA offers the Christian based curriculum that we were looking for and my daughter is able .."
"My gr'dtr is using "Freddy" as remedial math in hopes that the cartoon and ways to solve will be appealing to her. She feels very much like a failure, but the fault lies with her as she missed so much school from bullying and illness. She is actually.."
Calvert Review by Debi Edsinga
"We have used Calvert for 5 years prior to this year. I thouroughly enjoyed the curriculum until this year. They totally revamped the program for the 2018-2019 school. While I understand that there is bound to be problems with such a large overhaul, t.."
"The math part is very vague and the teacher does not explain well. The english part is very vague as well. There are too many projects happening at a time and they require a lot of time and you have to buy a lot for them. There are no breaks so when .."
Singapore Math Review by Steffen Carter
"I like Singapore Maths very much. I found its techniques as one of the most interesting way to teach maths to the students. Singapore curriculum is mostly focused on thorough the deep understanding of the problem rather than just learning it..."
"This is our first year with LUOA and it will probably be our last if I can find something else. The errors in the curriculum are just ridiculous. I have two children, one in middle school and one in elementary school and I have reported countless e.."
ALEKS Review by Felicia

A Beka Review by xiomara Gonzalez
"This is the first year we used Abeka online streaming, unfortunately my kids detest this ciriculum. The amount of quizes and homeworks is excessive and the videos are super boring and old fashioned. Also, one of my kids teacher died years ago but Ab.."
ALEKS Review by frustrated
"Literally a downgrade from khan academy. Nothing special about it, explanations are so poor they're asking for welfare, the most time-consuming topics I've ever seen, not even worth making the free account.."
"This is our 3rd year enrolling our children in Alpha Omega Academy. The teachers and staff are so caring and knowledgeable. When one of our children has a question about missing a problem, the teachers go out of their way to give a detailed explanati.."

"I'm seventeen and I have been doing this homeschooling program since I was in 6th grade! It's not that bad but there are a few cons about it, like: There are to many quizzes each week and they fit to many things into each section before the TEST. Mos.."
"When I checked it out, Spelling City is not free. A family subscription is $35 and a teacher subscription is $70 for 25 students. I can't figure out how to get it free yet I see multiple reviews here that say it is. Any help appreciated. Need free sp.."
